Same here. We trailer 45 mins to an hour each way on every outing. Sometimes travel 3+ hours each way. My pucker factor is pegged.This thread is giving me serious anxiety about my tire situation......... Am I an idiot to not change them all out to something higher quality immediately?
I've had pretty good luck with the Carlisle Radial ST on my enclosed snowmobile trailer (14" and 5K trailer (7x29' inline)). I take two trips to MT or WY from MN per year. Each trip is 2K-2.2K rt. They are wearing fine. I had one slow sidewall leak and the tire eventually blew (no damage) and one tire with some "weather cracking" in the side wall which I replaced. This is in 5-6 year old tires with 20K on them.This thread is giving me serious anxiety about my tire situation. I frequently tow my boat 600-800 miles round trip. I'm running the cheapo Carlisle tires that came on my trailer. Am I an idiot to not change them all out to something higher quality immediately?
The radial tire is different. I don't have any experience with the bias ply tires. I think we all agree that a radial is better than bias ply.
How do you like your mid america trailer.Trailer is very important if you are hauling a long way. We travel about 350 miles one way once or twice a year to our annual vacation lake and 50 to 70 miles to our local lakes. I ordered my trailer with 14" tires and made sure the trailer extended to support the center tube. It took two try's but I got it.
Most trailer wheel torque rating for that size axle would be 100-110ftlbs. Some are less, some more. It’s more important to be evenly tightened then anything.Anyone have a guess as to the wheel but torque for a genesis pontoon trailer. Called the manufacturer last week and left a message. Nothing on the trailer I’d tag.
