A 100% no problem ever is the Michelin xps rib. That's an excellent tire.

Have run china tires on multiple trailers and never had one blow out. Right now I am running 4 load range e's rated at 2450 per tire and pulling right at 10K total trailer weight. Obviously some is in the hitch weight, but the tires get a workout and so far...so good.

I figure them chinamen been stealing our stuff long enough they have just about got it down.

maskale just gettin started
Been talking to some guys here at work that are also farmers or ranchers. They all say buy them cheap ones, thats what we all use. I must of had a string of bad luck. My tires were up to pressure and looked fine and by no means over loaded.

So oh well. I'll get some more STs or LTs this weekend, which ever is avaliable.

I have allways run LT truck tires in a "E range".

I run the same size as my truck. First set lasted 6 years. Second set 2 years, to side wall cuts and dry rot problems. Cheap brand of tires to. Just got a 3rd set of take offs,6 with a good 25,000miles left on them.

Fully loaded tounge pull trailer about 8000lbs.

Sounds like some are hit and miss. About like everything. Depends how drunk the chinamen got the night before that work in the quality control department at the factory.

Only trailer tires I've have I had trouble with were the providers as I mentioned previously. Not just one bad one, but 3. I didn't give the 4th a chance to fail.


I just want a trouble free road trip going that far away. A blow out would bring the suck....

Make that about 11.5K...found out my trailer was a little more of a fat pig than I previously thought. Had to weigh it for registration and turns out 4240 total...so, about 3800 sprung weight plus around 7700 in rigs.

Mine is 36' and my title only says it weighs 4500. It's gotta be more than that. My JK weighs about 5500 according to the tag and my Yj probably weighs around 4000 +\-. I will try to have it weighed before we go on vacation
