They used to be much better tires 10 or 15 years ago, but yes now they are carp, never again!!!!
I would buy P or LT tires with enough weight rating to hold your load.
good to know. I always ran Carlisle bias ply and never even had a flat in 30 years. They may not ride as smooth as radials but durability was excellent. I have radials on Champion trailer now so that is what I will stick with. With a 5000 load I will be doing some serious research before replacing them.
What prop are you running on the Majek?
Well, my main prop is a 26p 4 blade Turbo OT4.. I got some ramp rash with that one, and just haven't spent the extra money to fix it yet. Current prop is a 25p 3 blade Fury. I get about 57mph WOT with the Fury and around 64 with the Turbo.. Something about that extra blade/pitch.
I've never had bias ply tires.. I haul too much longer trips for them. From my understanding they are good for shorter trips, but radials are for your long hauls to keep them cool..
I actually had about 5-6k miles on a set of Power King Towmax tires before someone decided to slash them.....
They were cheaper Chinese tires, but they were great! Not a single failure and I tow 75-80mph even on the Texas hot summer black top interstates.. They stayed nice and cool, followed the truck perfect, very little tread wear, and never a failure.. Matter in fact all summer before I headed out for a longer trip to Rayburn or wherever I always told myself they are going to blow out this trip.. Sure enough, 75mph in 100 degrees for long periods of time, I get home with all 4 tires perfect!
I think the best trailer tires I've ever seen are Goodyear Marathons.. My boat is a 2008.. I'm the 2nd owner. I finally had to replace the Marathons it came with because there was no tread left! Sure enough, I look at the date on the tires.. 2007!!! They ran for 10 years and probably a million miles and never blew out!!!
