    Where can I get some trailer tires that will last. I've seen where people suggest Carlilse tires. Where can I get a look at some? (web site) I am currently running 235/75/15 tires on my 6.5'x12' tandem axle trailer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Any discount tire store has carlisle tires.

    I would also recommend that any tire you get is E-rated. Only costs $20 more per unit, and worth gold when you have to rely on them.

    I have used Carlisle, Goodyear trailer tires, and even one time a Firestone car tire on my big trailers. I have found the Goodyears last a little longer than the others. I go through a set of 4 in about a year on my 24' enclosed. Most trailer dealers around here sell the Carlisle's.

    If you get a season out of a set of any tires on a dual axcel trailer you will be doing good. The back set of tires scuff off tread when turning. I pay about $80.00 each for E rated trailor tires ballanced and installed.
