What kind of trailer tires do you guys recommend?

I am clueless when it comes to tires. I dont know anything really. Such as biasply vs raidal, whats the difference, whats better, etc?

Oh and its a 20ft enclosed. I would like to get new tires on it ASAP.

Thanks!

Take it to a trailor shop. They will tell you the best tires for it. Dont use standard automobile tires, they wear pretty fast.

I did that last year and they put crap tires on it. Within a month the tire was loosing air.

I want to get the best tires I can for it. Maybe something with a load E if they make them for trailers?

I have triton 8ply tires. The heavier duty tires the better!

Why not go to a tire shop? I got my trailer tires at my local GoodYear store. They can get pretty much any tire I need.

If your wheels can fit a larger tire try looking at the BF Goodrich Commercial T/A Allseason they are a good long wearing rib tread tire. The smallest size they have is 235/75R15.

We get our tires for trailer from Discount and they are trailer tires since they won't sell us a passenger tire to put on a trailer. The trailer tires wear completely down in two years even though we probably don't put more than 5K on them. And the tires are getting around $85 where as a very good passenger tires runs about half that amount. I am running one passenger tire as an experiment on my 4 wheel trailer.
