Re: Sorta OT: Trailer tires diff from passenger tires?

Jeepgod is correct! Trailer tires, discernable with a T instead of a P or LT, are designed for just that, trailers! They are designed, especially for a tandem application, to be dragged sideways (scrub) when turning. Passenger car or light truck tires wont last doing that. Trailer tires arent expensive, last longer, and most have a tread pattern designed to help track straighter and brake well.
Do yourself a favor--get the correct tires for your application.

Okay, I'm sold on trailer tires...
Next question: PO swapped the wheels/tires from a Ford Ranger onto the trailer... Can I get trailer tires that'll properly fit on these rims, or will I also need to replace the rims also?
