It's time to replace the tires on my forty eight foot living quarter trailer. I'm getting mixed advice. One group says use LT tires which I have used for years while others say ST because the quality has been improved and are designed for the pivoting trailers do. Opinions vary on brand as well. One dealer says Towmaster, another says Kumho, and another says Gladiator. As far as LT tires the consensus seems to be Firestones.235 r85 16 G rated is my preference for size. Any real world observations or experiences would be helpful. Thanks

I second the Goodyear G614 tires, have had them on a 50' LG trailer with no problems and now on a 44' stacker. they are pricey but well worth it imo its way better that ripping your trailer up with blowouts!

^^These and this^^

Goodyear is making an Endurance in that size, and we run them on our smaller trailers with great luck, but not sure about the bigger trailers with big payloads.

If you decide to go with a ST tire, the RV world seems to be very happy with the Saliun brand tire. I have no experience with them, just passing along what the RV boards seem to like.

Most of the guys i know with big RV trailers run
the Salium. Pretty happy. Have not heard any complaints. Also Toad is a member here. Talk to him on the Tow Masters.

When you say Big Rig RV trailers, you mean stackers?

No. 3 axle high end RV's. Big money units. In the spring i am possibly headed with the 15' TowMaster. I have no room at all for a 16 on my
44' junk.

Still holding air, no tread wear, and round. I guess they are doing what they are supposed to. I would buy them again.
