Looking to replace my 7x14 two axle trailer tires (size 205/75R15’s). I would like to get recommendations on what is the best tires to go with, and what tires to stay away from? Thanks in advance for your replies!!
Just a heads-up; I recently purchased 4 new Goodyears for our trailer and all say "made in China" right on them. I was a bit disappointed to say the least, BUT the price was $64 ea shipped to my local Wal-Mart. Certainly no complaints on the price.
Over the years I've had the best success with General trailer tires, but they were twice the price of the Goodyears I just put on.
OEM on this trailer (7X14) was Goodyear, so I wanted to give them another try.
Also slowing down helps, 70 mph in your truck, the trailer tires could be doing near 100ALSO!!! Check your pressures EVERY TIME you use your trailer. Low pressures are a tire killer. If tandem axle, it's even more important. Keep the PSI at the upper end of the range. We also change all four tires every 3 or 4 years regardless of their wear.
Just my two cents,

If your in tim buck two and have no other choice .Any preference as to a bias tire vs. a radial tire? Had a blow out on the way home this past weekend. The trailer currently has bias tires on it. Can you mix and match bias and radials? I know you shouldn't on a car, but can't get a definitive answer on a trailer.
well its the truth, idiots run up and down the highway flying, and the little tires on the trailers cant handle it ,33 in tall tire spinning at 5500 rpms how fast is the 22 inch tire spinning? are the tires on the trailer high speed rated?
