I always do it... some say you dont need to because YOU dont feel the vibration in the tow vehicle ... but the trailer sure does and it will eventually shake the rig apart.

Wow, I missed this thread earlier. Those tires are REALLY close!

I have never know tires to be rated other than P or LT rated (LOL tire challenged!). I guess good to know if we ever go with a bigger rv

I always get my trailer tires balanced, not a must but if I figure if I can reduce the viberation in the trailer when going down the road, seems to me the trailer will hold together longer with less problems.

Another reason for balancing these tires is they almost weight 60 lbs each, you get that much tire weight out of balance and it could get bad.

The picture is misleading, the tires are not that close together, they are probably about 5 inches apart.
I can still install my BAL Tire Chocks between with ease.

I always balance trailer tires including boat trailers for the same reason Rob already stated. I don't want to shake my trailer to pieces either. Yes, I would remove wheels just to have them balanced which I do every 5,000-6,000 miles just like my TV.

These are LT Tires (LT235/85R16), there are several load ranges of LT tires, the "G" designation means a 14 Ply Rating, the "E" Rating means a 10 Ply Rating, the "D" Rating means a 8 Ply Rating, the letters go on down for lower Ply Ratings.

There are also speed ratings for tires too that are usually designated by a letter, these tires are speed rated "L" which is 75 mph.
