Where to get trailer tires??!!

I'm looking to find a replacement tire for my toy hauler, a 225/75-15 and must be at least a load range D. I have Carlisle tires on it now, I thought they were supposed to be a pretty good trailer tire, but had one blow out on me this last weekend and it tor up my trailer some... What and where do you get your tires from..??

It seems the more I research, the more I'm finding that out. Looks like the only ones I can find that are that size are Goodyear marathons, and some Titan brand, what's your suggestion?

The carlisle one I have seemed to look good, just separated from the tread when it blew

Trailer tires catch hell. Personally I would stuff a good size truck tire on there with D or E
ply with an aggressive side wall. Local tire shop should be able to hook ya up with or w/o
mounted on trailer. Good Luck!!

I use the TOWMASTER brand on all of my trailers.. I have never had a problem...

I would try to stick to a trailer specific tire as well.....

The waight ratings, rubber compound, and the side walls are made different.

I've replaced my boat trailer tires at Discount with Carlisle's. My current toy hauler has Carlisle's on it, too. No problems yet. How old were your tires?

We have a 10 ply radial trailer tire load range E on our hay trailer, picked them up from Discount for $280 for a set of 4 and they work very well considering what a Hay trailer goes through.

The tires I think were only about 3 years old, looked good, and check pressure before I left, no warning really.

Mine has Goodyears on it... Easy to get them at Discount Tire but you'll have to put them back on the trailer yourself as they won't even think about lifting a trailer... I'm sure some tire stores will do a trailer but I bet not too many... Might try an RV place for sure....
