Travel Trailer Tires and Camper Tires

Thursday, April 11, 2013 by Gary Stanley

With it starting to feel a little more like spring, many people are starting to bring out their toys. By toys, I mean: RVs, campers, ATVs, boats, personal water craft and motorcycles. While Tire Rack doesn't carry motorcycle or ATV tires, we do have a line of trailer tires and even some options for RVs. If you're concerned about your old, cracked and weathered trailer tires, now is a good time to consider replacing them.

Why use trailer tires instead of normal passenger car tires on your trailer? Simple, trailer tires are produced with heavier-duty materials and are constructed to be tougher than your typical passenger vehicle tire. A trailer will also be more stable on tires specifically designed for trailer use. For more information, read "Trailer Tires vs. Passenger Vehicle Tires."

The two tires we carry that are specifically designed for trailer use are the Power King Towmax STR and Goodyear Marathon Radial.

Be sure to check the condition of your trailer tires before head out on your first spring adventure. If you find you're in need of replacement tires, Tire Rack has you covered.

I need to replace 4 tires on my 70's vintage camp trailer. The tires on it are 6.50-13. What size should I replace them with?
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 by Gary:

The nearest size available to that size would be the 175/80R13 sizing. This size is 24" tall so be sure to check your clearances before purchasing.

What's the difference in letters. I'm not sure if I should order ST225/75R15C or ST225/75R15D
Wednesday, May 28, 2014 by Gary:

The letter C indicates that the tire is a load range C as opposed to load range D.
