The nice weather is here and many trailers are hitting the road with spring projects. Are your trailer tires in need of replacing? Until recently, Tire Rack only carried the Goodyear Marathon Radial trailer tire. For information on this Trailer Service tire, read my previous blog post, "Trailer Tires are Available at Tire Rack."
We now offer a few more tires in this performance category, including our newest option, the Power King Towmax STR. Like the Goodyear Marathon Radial, the Towmax STR tire is designed for use on campers, boat trailers, fifth wheel trailers and even some larger utility trailers. The tires also share some common design features, such as a symmetric tread pattern and twin steel belts with reinforced nylon caps to help increase overall durability.
Unlike the Marathon Radial, the Towmax STR is produced in the popular 235/85R16 load range E size that many full-size trailers use. Another unique application is the 225/75R15 size that's available in an E load range versus only a D load range with the Goodyear Marathon Radial.
Listed below are the available sizes for the Power King Towmax STR trailer tire:
- ST175/80R13 C
- ST185/80R13 C
- ST205/75R14 C
- ST215/75R14 C
- ST205/75R15 C
- ST205/75R15 D
- ST225/75R15 D
- ST225/75R15 E
- ST235/80R16 E
- ST235/85R16 E
Trailers will be more stable and pull better on tires designed specifically for trailer use. Special Trailer tires are constructed with heavier duty materials and are tougher than typical passenger vehicle tires.
