Replacement Trailer Tires

Friday, May 4, 2012 by Hunter Leffel

Recently, we added the Power King Towmax STR to our trailer tire line-up that also includes the Goodyear Marathon Radial. By adding the Towmax STR tire, we now have more sizes and load ratings available for customers looking for Trailer Service tires.

Both tires are similar in their exterior features. A rounded shoulder with an internal polyester cord body provides a smooth and stable ride. Circumferential grooves provide ample water evacuation. Constant and consistent contact with the road is achieved through the solid center rib and symmetric tread design.

Both the Goodyear Marathon Radial and Power King Towmax STR are radial construction. We don't offer bias ply lines. Additionally, Tire Rack only offers modern tire sizing in the form "ST205/75R15."  If you have an older tire with a classic size such as 6.50-15, you'll need to convert to a modern size first. To make the conversion simple, take a look at this table.

Special purpose trailer tires aren't intended to be used on cars or light trucks and are not UTQG rated. Your trailer will be more stable and pull better on tires designed specifically for trailer use. Since Special Trailer tires are constructed with heavier duty materials, they are tougher than typical passenger vehicle tires. This is a plus because trailer suspension systems are generally stiffer and less sophisticated than automotive suspension systems. For more information on a trailer tire's design, read "Trailer Tires vs. Passenger Vehicle Tires."

I have a 5th wheel toy hauler and there are times when I will be hauling off pavement..never the really rough stuff but 20 miles on gravel roads is not unheard of.
I want the best tire possible...changing tires has a very very low fun factor.

Hi Gage,
The trailer tires covered in this blog are the only options we have for dedicated trailer service. Youcould possibly explore LT tires, but that may dependent on the size you need.

I have a trailer with tires that I believe will not be capable of towing the load that I need. Printed on the sidewall of the trailer tires is 4.80 - 8.00 and B Load Range at 590 lbs per tire. My load will roughly be 1500lbs (It's a two wheel trailer btw).

I Have a pilgrim internanional camper this was sold with 14 inches tires at 50 psi.the owner before me change them to 15 inches rim and 20575R15. My question is how much air should i put on them?

Hi Adrian,
You should continue to run 50 psi assuming you have ST trailer tire and it says on the sidewall it can handle 50 psi.
