Tires

I have what I think to be the Original Goodyear tires on my trailer. It is a 2000 Maristar 230 with only 160 hours, so I assuming the tires are original. They look to be in good condition with no cracking. I am planning on a couple 8 hour trips down to Powell, and several 2-3 hour trips locally. I have read the bad stories on the Goodyears and want to replace them before I have a problem.

Replacement recommendations?

Thanks

Regardless of the brand I always started having issues with my trailer tires after about 36 months and this was on a multiple single axle trailers. I just got into the habit that these were necessary maintenance items to avoid inconveniences at very in-opportune times.

But give an answer, I've never had better luck with one manufacturer over another for trailer tires but the only brands that I have used have been Goodyear's and Carlisle's.

Given that the tires are 10 years old, I would change them if you want to avoid problems. If you want to stay on the cheap, and don't mind changing tires on the road, you might get by for a while, but its only a matter of time with tires of that age.

New tires or beat up fenders, it'll be one or the other.

Yeah, I figure that is worth $300 for new tires to not have a blowout somewhere in the middle of nowhere and have that hassle. I put trailer tires from Big O on my enclosed aluminum snowmobile trailer and had no problems.

Today I had a customer leave with what appeared to be 2 OK Goodyear Marathons in route to Minn with a boat. 96 PS 190. BOTH BLEW OUT 75 miles away. I hate GOOD YEAR. We ran 75 miles ea way to get then swapped out and on the road. Worth the $80 per tire to get new. We have had good luck with Carisle Trailer Tires

You live in Denver right? Where do you ride? We're taking a last trip this weekend. Flattops Fri, Grand Mesa Sat.
Sorry to jack your thread!

Seems like a trailer tire is hard to find.
