What brand and size tires for trailer?

I am replacing all of my 4 tires on my 1995 225VRS Dual axle trailer. It is in storage and I need to find out what size tires I need to order. If there is a brand that you would reccomend, that would be great!

Off the top of my head, at least on the single axle trailer, I beleive it's 215/75/14. I use Goodyear marathons. On a dual axle trailer, with blowouts not being such a potential catastrophe, you could probably get away with a lesser tire though.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

My trailer is a tandem axle, and the tire sizes are the same as Eastie posted above. I would stick with the Marathons.

I agree with the marathons's. My dad had Carlisles on his trailer and had 2 blow outs in the first 500 miles. He took it back to the dealer to have a new set put on, and had a third blowout on one of the old tires that had not be replaced. I have never had a blowout with my Marathons and I easily trailer over 5,000 miles per year.

Get on out there and buy yourself a set!
Probably 3/4 of the board already own 'em
