TravelerI have a 26' Travel trailer that came with 20575R15 tires from the factory. I have been loosing a tire every camping season (blowout). It seems that the tires originally installed are not of sufficient load rating as the trailers max. GVW is 7600lbs. I plan to go to the heaviest rated 15 " tire available. Any ideas on what is available or what will be the most durable?
DavebI take it there are at least 4 tires? With a trailer that can get that heavy, you have to have dedicated tires for the purpose. Trailer tires are not technologically the most advanced thing on the planet. They do however have stiffer side walls. There are load range C ST205/75r15 tires available. They will give you an additional 300+ pounds per tire(1820@50). After that, you have to look at larger 15" tires. If there is enough clearance a 225 would give a big boost in capacity, hopefully without sacrificing the towing balance of the trailer. Trailer tires cost more but are usually worth it. An example would be the Goodyear Marathon.
