Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks all for the thoughts and advice. I removed all the tires last night and I should have them back tomorrow with brand new Good Year Endurance tires ready to re-install. Sundancer was right. The thought was stuck in my head so peace of mind it is.

Replace them the original tires are not even worthy of being on the trailer when empty let alone once loaded they are overloaded I had a brand new unit with 3500 miles on it blow a tire and did over $2000 damage to the rig . From then on I will only run a quality G rated tire

old tires

One thing to consider is selling your"old tires" locally. You should be able to get $20 to $30 each if they have a lot of tread. Local folks with utility trailere would be your market.
CraigsList or Facebook or similar may work best for you.
Don't just give them tot he tire dealwe so he can sell them.


You can also keep one tire as a spare assuming you have space to carry it. Check local junk yard for a car wheel that will fit.

I didn't replace them and one blew out at 70 MPH under the slide out. Did $5000 damage AND had to replace the tires. I went to 10 ply tires.
