    I'm having a new trailer built soon and have a question on tire size. It will be a single axle, 5 X10 trailer which is the perfect size for my operation. (I have access to other trailers and this needs to fit in my garage). Will the size of the tire affect the ride? I'm leaning toward 15" , but the trailer guy is pushing 14". Does it matter?
    Thanks

    check the weight load of the tires. most of the trailers that size have 15" tires you will be just 1 inch higher than the 14 inch tire.
