Trailer Tires???


fisher98

Question

Does anyone have any info or insight into the purchasing of new trailer tires? I know a little about the top of the line tires, but would like to know what other brands people prefer, where you got them, or places that can do it for you. I also would like to save a few bucks, or find the most economical way to get this finished, hopefully before mid-April....thanks for any info or insight that you may provide!!!

What size are you looking for?

In general, tires designed for trailers are built tougher and with more material so that they can withstand heat, overload, sway and mistreatment due to improper inflation. They come with the ST (special trailer) designation.

Carlisle and Marathon are a couple of the most recognized brands and are available at places like Fleet Farm.

I have two new, never used 4.80 x 12 boat trailer tires mounted on four-hole white rims. I'm asking $50. [email protected] in St. Cloud.

I use Trailer house tires on my trailer. They've been on there for years and I haven't had any problem. I think you can pick them up pretty cheap from a mobile home moving company.

Hiya,
Just one angler's experience, but I'll never, EVER, have Carlisle tires on my trailer again. I do trailer a lot of miles in the course of a year, but in the past 2 years I've had 3 different Carlisle trailer tires with tread separation. Treads just up and fly the hell off, and it's not fun at 70 mph. Last one was on Hwy 10 outside St. Cloud on a Sunday afternoon, and I the slung tread wrapped around the axle. So there I sat with a pair of cutters and a pry bar unwrapping the tread while cars whizzed by at 75 mph 3 feet away. NOT fun. Tires on there were rated for the trailer weight too - so not like I had inadequate tires. Have talked to other Carlisle owners who've had the same problem. Check some of the bass boat owner's boards and you'll find some similar stories.

Go with Marathon, or similar high quality brand.

as I said, some may do just fine with Carlisles, but I'll never put one on again.

RK

I have Carlisle tires on my utility trailer that hauls both my ATV's regularly and had hauled several loads for distances over 2500 pounds. My boat trailer also has Carlisle tires on it and must have 20,000 miles on them now.. never had any problems with the tires, and the tread life is great.

The other forum user that has had problems with them(forgot name).. have you had any problems with bearings, or possibly tire alignment(bent axle, hub not perfect) that could be causing heat build up? Over-inflating maybe? There is usually a reason for tires giving out prematurely... Maybe your close to the *max load* and traveling at speeds that exceed what the tires were rated for.. thus causing too much heat... I dont drive 55 myself.. I keep up with the traffic(and then some at times).

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      Sounds like a fun day Moose. The weather was just about perfect for the days event.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
