O.T. Trailer tire recommendations and advice
Well stupid me forgot to check the tire pressure on my trailer before making the trip to the bash. The tires were suppose to have 50psi, but only had about 25 to 30psi. This caused the tires to wear extremely bad to the point that only the outer 2 treads looked good, but the inner ones were worn bad with the tread in some areas being raised if that makes sense. Well on the ride home, I noticed that one of the tires seemed to be kicked out on the bottom riding on the inner edge of the tire. I pulled over jacked it up (with my newly won highlift) and tightened all the spindle bolts. They are now nice and tight, but that one tire still appears to be kicked out a bit. Needless to say, all tires are now toasted, but that one tire is especially bad. Again, the outer treads are fine, but all of the inner ones are now gone and it is basically a skin. Would the incredibly unballanced tread cause the tire to do this? Or is another problem that I need to address? Also, since now i'm in the market for 4 new tires, any recommendations on a 205/75/14st tire? I think that is what the new size for the old f78/14st.
