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. ThanksThis message has been edited. Last edited by: rarmbruster0001,
Size would help...
Goodyear g614 or Firestone transforce if 16”
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.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Roger McGinnis,
Can't go wrong with that Firestone IMO.
Looking for a good used 177 Weiand for a SBC
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.
I just put these on my stacker. 4000+# each. I like them. Seem like a good tire.
How are the Sailun tires holding up?
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.This message has been edited. Last edited by: TD3550,
Thanks for the info TD!
Still holding air, no tread wear, and round. I guess they are doing what they are supposed to. I would buy them again.

That’s all I needed to hear!
Firestone transforce on my 48 gooseneck living quarter trailer. Haul a dragster and superstreet on the 235X85X16 E rated tire.
Goodyear Endurance 235/80-16 load range E, OEM equipment on my 34 foot Intech trailer that’s 14,000+ lbs. going down the road with my dragster, Firebird, golf cart and scooter. Just replaced them back in September with a new set after 4 years without issue.
