Looking for some new tires for my boat. 17’Crestliner. I want some good tires that are durable and can handle trips to Canada and some tourney style abuse.

I have had Dico and they have made several trips up there. Goodyear also make a good trailer tire. It really doesn't matter as long as you get something with a high load rating. I think the ones on my trailer are load range C.

Be sure to go with a raidial type tire if you were running a bias ply in the past. They will run cooler and last longer, plus they pull much easier.

Big Bobber is right on point. The best IMO is the Goodyear Marathon Radial C rated.

If you are running the original tire from your trailer manufacturer you should expect one year at best with moderate to heavy useage. (some of the top of the line trailers are different)The best thing you can do is take that trailer in and get a good set of radial tires. It will be the best investment you can make!!

One thing, beings your in getting new tires have the guys put the loaded trailer up on the alignment rack and have the trailer aligned, this will add many miles on your tires. Paul

From what I've heard if you have bias ply tires on your trailer you should replace them with bias ply tires. Radial tires have too much side to side play and can start the trailer fish tailing at high speeds. This can be a bad thing when the tralier wants to pass the car your towing with...

Good Luck....

As always Chemist your info is golden. Of course I ment the trailer, didn’t mean to confuse you. Ha! If it helps I have a heavy duty shore lander trailer.
About getting the trailer up on the alignment rack and have the trailer aligned how does that work. What do they align? One more question; I have bearing buddies on the trailer, how often do you guys check the grease in them/or replace it? j0078811(t).gif

Alot of boat trailers are assembled in a hurried fashion. Sometimes the axle isnt quite square under the trailer, a simple sliding of the spring mounts will do the trick, camber and caster issues are dealt with by tweeking the axle itself to bring it into specs, I had this done to my trailer a couple years ago, my tires are wearing but in the correct way, before I was cupping on the inside, took it in, no longer a problem, that was 25,000 miles ago. No piece of fishermans equipment gets abused or neglected like a boat trailer..A good tire shop should be able to handle it..Good luck! Paul

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
