the tires that are on it are trailer tires with good tred but one has 3 plugs and 1 has 2 and 1 is bold becouse of a axel that was bent [ i fixed that ] i have a friend that has some reguler truck tires he will give me but i think i will go get some trailer tiresAZFord4x4 said:. Whatever it is, I wouldn't be cheap on it. Think about how much what you're putting on that trailer is worth to you, then consider how much you're willing to spend.
Totally agree, Working at a semi tire center at one point, the only tires that ever came in blown out on trailers pulled by pickups were of the radial variety. The guys with bias ply's just came in for replacements because they were bald.fj40charles said:Get some bias ply trailer tire. Go with an 8 or 10 ply load range E tire. Don't mess around with trailer tires. I've seen too many trailers on the side of the road with blown tires.
How do you figger that? Pulling a big rig trailer with bias ply tires vs. one with radials. I can pull most big hills I gear higher and faster with radials than the same hill with a trailer with bias ply tires. This is after many trips with different trailers but loaded as close to 80K is I can get the rig each trip. The radials just roll better and take less power for the same speed or let you drive faster for the same load.Blue 84 said:
Right, not to mention pull easier
