Tire shopping for our 36 FBTS

Has anyone ever heard of, or used these tires Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range F.
I'm starting to shop around for tires for our 36 FBTS Pinnacle, I know many people recommend the G614's.

went shopping myself and local tire shop quoted me those karrier tires ( witch looks awful and seems cheap) 198$ CND

For the money , you can't beat the Sailun S637 G Rated tire. Excellent quality AND price.

Another shop quoted 175$ each CND $

I believe Maxxis stops at E rating. They are great tires for those that can run E rated but for the 36FBTS you need at least G rated tires. I went with G614's.

Did you use the factory wheels that came on your FBTS, I was told they're rated for 110psi but I can't see it on the wheel anywhere. I haven't pulled a wheel off yet, it must be out of sight while they are mounted.

Thanks

I bought 4 G614's to replace my TowMax tires after 2 failures in a 75 mile stretch. You will pay $$$ to get them but on the sidewall is "Made in USA". Priceless.

I did not see them because they were installed by the dealer as part of the deal. But I am sure they are.

Make sure the wheels can handle the weight and/or 110 lb pressure. The wheel should be stamped 3960 lbs or higher.
