Show this to your neighbor and then have them fix the load inside the trailer.

Thats probably the best call... but based on the below test image...I think that is only valid for <20' boats.

Lol, I love folks who profess their self importance on the internet by claiming they know more than someone else whom they know absolutely nothing about! Whatever blows your skirt up....
You're potentially right, in that I may have never hooked a trailer to the back of anything and towed it, or I may have more experience than even you who's apparently forgotten more about trailers than most know.
But the simple fact that you even suggested using a P rated tire in the application we are talking about, shows you're mostly just full of __it.
And show me those sweet 14" and 15" LT tires that you talked about. (Seriously if I could find a good 2000lb + load rated LT 14" tire I'd probably use it)
Also, we'd be cool with it if you went back to the Glastron boats forum!

Ooooo, so full of anger. I feel so chastised. LOL. You're so cute when you are angry. Like I said, do whatever you want. I just offered an option based on my experiences, you are the one who got his "skirt blown up". No conflict from me.

If an LT tire can be found in your size then that is what I would use. As I said in an earlier post if not, use a passenger car tire. Either of them are better than a "trailer rated" tire IMHO. I will say no more on this subject. Thank You.

You're arguing with a guy that starts threads like this, he's clearly got a self righteous on the internet complex going on.

P and LT tires do not have the sidewall thickness or load ratings that trailer tires do, so heat dissipation is not nearly as good which is a very common cause of trailer tire failure. Extra loads, evasive maneuvers, swaying, lower tire pressure all create extra heat - again heat being a huge enemy of safe trailer tires or any tire under load.

Nearly any tire dealer will suggest a properly rated trailer tire for safety and longevity. See eTrailer, Tire Rack, Goodyear, any credible tire dealer. All will recommend the same.

I would also bet that my X10 trailer likely weights the same or more than a 1980 Glastron CV16 with 115HP outboard, so not a comparison that should be made to a modern vdrive. Also presume a smaller/lighter boat has a single axle so IME would also be biased towards a proper tire since there is no backup in a tire failure.

Lastly, if you are the numbnut who wants to save $40 and endanger yourself, then that alone might benefit the gene pool - but you are also endangering everyone else on the road so GTFO.

Moose you don't understand, Roadster has forgotten more about tires than anyone here has ever learned

Oh and I went over to the Glastron forums, (where you should be Roaster) and you're exactly right. Under 1500lbs vs a 3500lbs X2. Food for thought.

Oh and Roadster if you ever do cause an accident from a trailer blowout make sure your insurance never find this thread! Safety matters!
