Frustrating for sure. I run load range G on practically all heavy trailers. I had one blow a hole in the side wall. It wouldn't take air and I couldn't figure out why. Pulled the outside tire and saw the hole on the inside tire. It only had about 900 miles on it. Yokohama tire

Oh it gets better the spare the trailer place sold me doesn't even fit that hub... :mad: I took the tire off the drums about 8 inches off the ground so thats how it will limp home. Where do you buy your tires and brand you use? I have tried several different companies they all are crap from where I found.

trailer tires should be replaced every 5 yrs whether they have any miles on them or not. I just started buying real trailer tires for my utility trailers a few years ago . I had always ran used car tires but I dealt with flats more often. Had 2 put on my utv trailer a few weeks ago 140.00 out the door at Road Mart

I'm not overly happy with any 15" trailer tire. But these seem to be holding up on a single axle trailer that I tow my Samurai on.

I wish they would make a semi trailer tire that could fit on a 15" rim, and still have clearance so it didn't rub the sides.

My uncle put some used tires on one of my trailers. I only had about 6 tons on it, thank goodness. I cleaned out the ditches on both sides of the road and tore up all rims. The money he saved with used tires wound up being very costly. Time consuming too. Lucky there was no oncoming traffic or it would have been much worse.

i think most all trailer manufacturers put the cheapest tires possible on trailers to pricepoint the sell

Exactly. It is the age we live in. If a trailer cost $20 less 100 miles away, people will burn $30 worth of fuel to go get it.

I bought a flat bed from an estate sale, drug it to Goodyear immediately and replaced everything on it. Wound up with nearly half the price of the trailer spent again on tires.
