make sure you are getting the correct load rating to match what you are towing, more important than the cheapest price for a tire that will fit just the rim ! ! !

Do not go to Dave's unless they stopped selling the Load Star tires. There has been alot of discussion here and I can attest to the fact that they do not wear very well. Mine are very appropriatley rated for my boat, as a matter of fact I upgraded at the suggestion of daves to their recommended size and still have wear issues very similar and identical to other who have used the same tires.

The overall concensus here has been the Marathon Good Year radials availabl at a good price from www.thetirerack.com

Do a search for Load Star on this board and see what you get, maybe one word, Loadstar

I have Marathon on my trailer,but it seems that Good Year is now doing the out soursing thing with their Marathon`s [Made In China]so they have lost my business.

It appears that these chaps don't think much of Marathons. When it comes to tires you pay your money and take your chances.

Soem poeple actuallyloved them and swore by them. Some of the bad ones were the Carlisles which didn't meet with TF approvals int he links above either.

Any suggestions for the good trailer tires instead of teh Marathons? I was thinking about replacing mine this year with Marathons, now maybe not.

The Generals were suggested as well as Towmaster. Any others?
