Replacing all tires on trailer

How does one replace ALL tires at the same time in your trailer, tow the trailer to the tire shop and let them deal with it? OR Unmount all wheels at home and take all 4 of them to the tire shop to get replaced?

Take trailer to tire shop. I am too old to remove tires and wheels. The tire shop is geared up for this.

The last time I had to do that I took it to GOODYEAR.

I have done it several ways.

1. Make arrangements to arrive at the tire place early before the lot is full. Coordinated with tire shop. Usually in and out in an hour.

2. Jack trailer up and put one side on jack stands. remove both tires, take them to tire shop. Repeat other side.

I prefer #1. I have done that several times.

I've done it two different ways. One way, I jacked up one side of the trailer and removed those wheels and took them in, then came back, put them back on and did the other side. The second time I just hooked up the trailer and took it to the tire shop. They backed it into one of their bays and did it right there, not even unhooking it from the truck. The second method was far easier.

There's a place close to home that handles both big rigs and passenger cars. They had all sorts of equipment there to handle just about everything.

My plan is to do one or two at a time.
Yes it's a few trips, but I'm not far, and I feel more comfortable doing it myself.

The tire shop I purchased my tv tires from had me come in for "free" rotations.
I would get the truck back with 80psi in the front and 65psi in the rear!

Not the greatest minds doing tire changes! And I've done hundreds of tire changes myself.

Always take the Wheel/Tire assemblies off and take it into the Tire Shop.
I like to do the Torqueing myself.

My tire shop (Discount Tire) has a pretty big parking lot beside it - and LONG air hoses. I just park in the lot, they bring out a racing jack and air wrench and they have the tires off and back on in minutes.

Thank you all.. I'd probably bring the wheels myself and do 2 two trips to the tire shop.

No matter who works on the tires, I always re-torque with my own wrench when I get home and also a few times a year.
