Which is going to last longer & which would you chose if you had the option to have one over the other?

The tires are part of the suspension so a 14" has more sidewall with a lil flex.

The 18" low pro trend ride stiffer and beats up your favorite toy. Im not willing to do that for a more expensive tire.

Life is probably the same at 5 years. Most never wear thru the tread the tires sinply get old.

The age of your tires is on the side. It is a four digit number. First two digits are which week of the year they were made. Second two are the year. Change every 5 years no matter what.

I like the 14" Carlisle Radial Trail HD ... load range D.
The Maxxis M8008 are not a bad choice.
Some like the Goodyear.

The bigger wheel will add height to the trailer. Double edge sword. You’ll have to raise your hitch. Bigger tires will last a little longer I guess.

I’d go with 15”. Seems to be a little better selection on 15” trailer tires vs 14”. Just my opinion.

Thanks guys-trying to iron out all the options in buying a new boat-unfamiliar territory when it comes to hauling with different size rims...
