Trailer Tires For Triaxle Trailer

I'm looking for trailer tires for my triaxle trailer. Is it is a single wheel not a dual wheel set up. The tires I have on the trailer right now are goodyear LT235 85 R16 Load range G. These tires cost a couple bucks, so I started shopping around. I came across Gladiator QR35-TR tires. They are half the cost does it mean they are 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, or as good as the good years? Also I am looking at load range g there is not much selection. If you go to load range F there are more tires to choose from and the weight capacity is 3960 per tire while the load range G tires are 3760. Why is F higer capacity then G or is there another factor involved other than weight. What does everyone else use for tires on their bobcat, cat, deere... trailer?

Holy cow you wrote a book!

I buy the cheapest tires. Even for my trucks. They last just as long. Buying name brand is nothing more than throwing good money away.

Tires for our trailers cost something like $75 from trailer store....... My other tire guy has been trying to buy $95 steel ply I think they are saying they would last twice as long.... I get a whole season and a half now rather than the couple months from the cheap ones.

I might be be exaggerating, but the steel ones last much longer. These are on our lawn maintenance and landscape trailers. All tandem axel, and they chew through tires.

On the other hand, while you don't need a name brand - you also probably do not want the cheapest.

I am mainly looking for the load range that I have on it right now. I thought g would have a higher capacity than f but are close. I was just wondering if there was something else to the rating besides weight capacity. The goodyear tire is 325 a piece plus shipping I think it's crazy but it seems to be the only one with that spec.
