what ply should i get. i'm getting lots of holes/air leaks

what would be a good long lasting trailer tire.

the ones on there now only have about 6k miles on them and they are shot. holes everywhere.

i'm ok with buying off the internet if they are not too expensive. i can put them on myself.

I just bought a set of 10 ply rating tires; they're radials which my tire man said should hold up better. I have been through a lot of tires, too. I will sit back and see what others recommend.

I used to by 8 ply tr. tires every year 3/4 year through they started going one at a time thats 4 tires a year almost on all my trailers. this year our trailer axel got bent? sucks so until I replace the axel I have been running cheap used car tires which is a pian but half the price I really need good tr. tires also high or low price none ever last!

michelin ltx m/s is what i just put on the truck in spring.

they have a deep tread though. i was thinking of putting these on the trailer too. it's an E rated tire

would this be a good selection?

My 10-ply trailer tires cost about $110 each and are Load Range E (~2800 lbs each at 80 psi); I bet the truck tires would run you a good bit more. IMHO, I wouldn't put truck tires on the trailer; they're designed for two different kinds of use.

Another thing to consider is weight you will be hauling; My trailer weighs in around 10,000# fully loaded. I have been using Load Range D but the E tires are supposed to handle the weight better and maybe last longer. I would get the next size up from whatever your maximum weight requires.

Example: 10,000# / 4 = 2500# per tire. The D can handle 2500 each, but the E is the next size up at around 2800 ea.
