Trailer Tires

Time to replace the tires on my cargo trailer. It is a dual axle 14' with an empty weight of near 2k and loaded it is probably near 7k.
It takes 205-75-15's and I would like to stick with an 8 ply if possible without breaking the bank.
Who recommends what, and why?
Who can cut me a deal?

Thanks,
Jay

i typically go to discount and get tires designed for trailers only, they work well and take a lot of guess work out of what size to run. They are typically about $105 a tire, may be a little more for a heavier tire but not much. Of course assuming you live near a discount tire...

I also get the highest load rating I can get for the size I need. The trailer mfgs dont
always put the one on that would be best. They put the one on that will be maxed out when the trailer is loaded, I like a little more tire than what is really needed just to be
safe.

I just bought 4 10ply 235/85/16 yesterday for my 36' horse trailer. I paid 89.00 a piece. With mount and balance and tax I was out the door for 433.00! I am well pleased with them. They are strictly a trailer tire and they even say it on the side.

Marathons are junk, Carlisles are ok. Buy your tires at Discount Tire and buy the certificate for the tires, $15 tire replacement.

I just bought 4 Hercules Power STR trailer tires in 215/75/14 for my travel tire at 105 installed. They are 1870lbs/tire rated opposed to the 1760 for 205/75. It may be wise for you to step up one size of tires and gain some extra load capacity assurance. As for the Hercules, they appear to be well made, and towed really nice on my test trip last week. I wont really run them until may 24th when we head out camping.

If you can find Kumho 857 tires, they are a commercial/trailer tire and have insane load capacities. For instance, in the size I was looking at where the 215/75 are 1870 lbs, the 205/75 Kumhos were 2270 if I recall correctly. Unfortunately none of the dealers up my way could find them.
