Tire and Rim Opportunity

Need some advice on tires TT. So Peter, step up..

Here is the story: As you may or may not remember my neighbor builds the custom tailgating trailers. His most recent build he had to reduce the tire size on one unit so he has four tires/wheel combination left over. Of course, me being the kind neighbor, I am all over it saying these would fit my boat! And I know they should.

Picture #1 - Current Rim and Tire
American Racer Rims with a LoadMaster Tire 215/75/14 rated at 1870 Pounds purchased in 2005, still going strong but should really consider changing.

Picture #2 - New Rim with New Tires. The rims are nice and remind me of the MC rim. As for the tires, they show up as an H188ST 205/75/14 tire rated at 1760 pounds, see link below.

I know nothing about these tires and need your help to see if they are worth using for a few years.

Thanks BOYZ!!!

Oh, I plan to buy all 4 and use the third as a spare tire. The 4th I will hold on to in case of damage...

The first ones were on the General Lee I think.

I like both of them.

Mike, I never realized until tonight how long they have been on the trailer. Not a ton of miles but they are still in good shape.

I can pretty much name my price. Just trying to see about the quality of these tires.

Not familiar with the tire. If your buddy has been having good luck with the tires I wouldn't hesitate. The wheels look nice. Sounds like a deal too good to pass up. Downsizing one size in tires shouldn't be a problem unless you are already bumping your propguard.

Not familiar with the tire?? WOW!! What about the weight rating? Any issues?

No issues with the prop guard.

The same supplier uses them on the Little Guy trailers.
