Power King Towmax STR vs Towmax STR II Trailer Tires

As mentioned in "Goodyear Marathon Radial vs. Power King Towmax STR Trailer Tires", the Towmax STR is produced in the popular 235/85R16 Load Range E size that many full-size trailers use. The new Towmax STR II is also made in this size. Another unique application is the 225/75R15 size that's available in an E Load Range versus only a D Load Range with the Power King's competitor tire, the Goodyear Marathon Radial

As you can see in the above photos, there has been no change in tread pattern between the two versions. The only change we've been able to find is an update in the tread compound of the tire to a new low rolling resistance compound to help the tire provide better fuel economy. The manufacturer has also indicated that the new tire is mixable with the original Towmax STR, even in single replacement tires.
