Buy a trailer rated tire...don't chance your safety (or mine) to a car tire...there are usually not that much more.

Also, Discount sells a Maxum or Maxxis tire, I had good luck with them.

After getting a trailer tire the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT thing is keeping 50psi in there, anything else they will wear unevenly...

Also, if you read on the goodyear marathon site, trailer tires are not designed to last until the tread wears away, like car tires. Every 3-5 years (depending on where it is stored, sunlight breaks them down) they need to be replaced, even if the tread is brand new looking. I know, I know, they are trying to sell tires, but take it into consideration.

Funny this subject came up on the BassCat owner's board yesterday and here is their response:

It is all in the load rating just keep that in mind and if you do no ones safety is a concern.

I would take the advise of those responders who say buy trailer tires, of the proper load rating.

I had bad luck with Marathons (now made in China) and very bad luck with Carlisles. (Blowouts-Separations-blowouts) And I keep them inflated.

Last set I bought was Towmasters, about a year ago. Still o.k.
(made in Canada).

I will not trust tires made in China!

For Forkduc- Discount will work on them on the trailer - they also have or can order the Marathons - just replaced two that they ordered and got in about 2 days. Seems like it was about $200 +/- for tires mounted and balanced.

Those are what I have and have not had any issues. Recommended by the guy at Discount tire a few years back.

You get what you pay for.

I buy the best I can afford. One less thing to worry about.

I have had great luck with the Tow Master II tires, which are six ply and run at 50 psi. I get them at Select tire for $43 plus about $20 shipping. Here is website.

Trailer tire stand up better. Therefore when going around curves or sudden swerves the trailer will track better. The last thing you want is to have a trailer start swaping ends. Take this from my past experience with car type tires.

For years, I always used radials on the boat trailer. Recently, I switched to trailer tires after an unbelievable fiasco on the side of the road involving a spinning lug bolt. The one thing I've noticed in the change is that the trailer tires seem a little "stiff" when first leaving on a trip, maybe the first five miles or so. They cause a small amount of vibration in my truck. I went back and had them re-balanced and that helped. They are six ply. After they sort of "warm up" they run fine. Overall, trailers should have trailer tires.

Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.
