I was looking at tires for the trailer, When I called Discount Tire they said they do 2 Carlisle ST for $215 with a lifetime replacement. Goodyear Marathons for $260 with lifetime replacement. I've never heard of this from other tire stores on Trailer tires, so I asked again in person today and the guy said that for any reason the tire fails, if there is tread left on it they will replace it, At any discount tire in the US.

Has anyone ever heard of this? I think they have there policy on car tires and trailer tires confused.

Good advice!!

I'm running, 215/75R14's
I don't know what to think... I may call a random discount tire in another state and ask about a replacement trailer tire under the warranty.

Happy and confident (hopeful) that the recently new Kumhos will serve me well. If you are so inclined to search, don't look for them from an auto supplier. Most can't get them, even if they are a Kumho dealer. I had to order mine from Tire Rack.

205/0R14 Radial 857 Trailer
$127 each = 254
No sales tax
Shipping 31.83 to TN
Total 285.83

Warranty means nothing to me. It's a disposable item to me. If it were a local buy? maybe....


.


I decided to just go ahead and get new wheels and tires from ThatsmrMC, My wheels are gross and ugly. So they would have been a sore thumb on the re painted trailer.
Thanks for the advise on the Kumho tires tho. My dad runs them on his 28ft cabin cruiser.

Got the new harness in and the 2 rear most stop/tail/turns installed, so I will be legal to go to the welder tomorrow. I hope to finish the fenders and the rest of the lights beginning of next week.

Wish I would have seen this thread earlier. I bought my 1994 PS 190 3 years ago and was dragging the prop guard a lot. I had 2" blocks welded on the axel and now the trailer sits just right.

I have casters sitting In my truck right now to weld on the back, I thought about putting blocks in but didn't cause of the time crunch having the boat off at a shop.
