Time to upgrade my car trailer tires, on my 20ft open car trailer. What kind of tires are you guys running (brand and load rating)? Just curious to see what load rating to run with.

I appreciate any input!:D

Firestone Fire Hawks load range C, 235/70R15C's to be exact :thumbsup

they are the correct hight but a good bit wider allowing the trailer to float in muddy mucky places it also seem's to roll easier on the pavement . . .

I have D rated 15" Goodyears on my Haulmark triaxle. 13 yrs and only on my second full set of tires.

Would love to upgrade to 16", but oh well it's made it this far.

I too would love to run some 225/75R16E's or 245/75R16E's for the loads that actually end up on it . . .

Really trying to decide between "C" or "D" load range tires. Any 'trailer' tire hopefully will do better than the regular radials that are on there I hope.:(

That is why I am running E rates taken off the pickup, they are down to 4 32nds coming off the pickup and are usually 7-8 years old before the wearbars show flush.

The other part is the number of trailer tires that break the belt, looks like rust to me, but the tread breaks diagonally.
