A local tire shop sells the 14 ply trailer tires. He had a display set up at the county fair truck and tractor pull Friday night. Seems those tires are rated 4400# single, 3850# dual. 30k plus on a dual tandem. ( more than the axle rating on most)

I had a 3 axle trailer for 10 years. Its harder to pull. I didn't have a problem with the tires wearing out faster. The problem I had was the breaking. A 21,000 trailer has less breaking area on 3 axles as the dual wheel 2 axle. Both 20000 but less square inches of breaking service. Never did like that trailer for stopping. I purchased a dual axles 3 years ago and have been very happy. I got the electric over hyd disc brakes. Well worth the money.

I am trying out Goodyear's new "Endurance" tire, the sidewall is very stiff, its made in USA (big selling point IMO) and the tread is nice and flat, and the speed rating is for 86 mph. my size is ST235/80R16

The dealer said he has been having good luck with them, has a few oilfield customers.

Normally I dont give Goodyear the time of day on anything, but I am giving them a chance on these.

IIRC the last one was $181 mounted and balanced, with me installing it at home.

Our other tire shop says that out of all cheap import trailer tires, he says the Power Kings are the better value, seems to last longer than most but are still pretty affordable.

Sitting in the sun at full pressure is what kills most trailer tires, they love to separate. try to cover them and lower the pressure to 50 or so.
