I balance every tire, trailer or not. The reduced wear and vibration are worth the small cost.

I took the trailer to Discount Tire. They jacked the whole trailer up. (4 jacks, one at each spring mount) and changed the tires. Quick and easy.

I recommend the Maxxis if you are not going to a LT tire. Stay away from all tires made in China. You can run LT tires with a highway tread just fine as long as they are rated to carry the weight you need.

Your in a simular boat as me. I need new tires and have not decided on a brand. I assume you also have 180/85R13 tires. There is not many options out there for these small tires. I'm considering Marathons, Maxxis, and Discount Tire informed me Carlisle has a new Trail HD tire that Is a load D rated. I have not found any info online about this tire.

I'm thinking about pulling my tires off two at a time and bringing them in. While I'm at it pulling the hubs and greasing the bearings.

Good luck

tires

if you replace the tires now may be good time to replace the wheel bearings and check the brakes. if you check the bearings they might as well be replaced.
Then you will be set

1) I'd rather replace them all just so I know they're good and I can monitor their age and quality. Recommendations on a brand?

2) My plan is to take the wheels off the trailer (maybe one side at a time)... And have the new tires mounted down at Town Fair Tire... Then put them back on the trailer. Any better ideas? I can't imagine towing the whole camper somewhere...

3) (possibly stupid question) Should I buy 5 tires so I can replace the spare? I have no clue how old the spare currently is.

Maxxis and go up a load range if possible.
