What is the most popular travel trailer tires ?

I have to replace my tires and trying to determine the best tires to buy.

Thanks in advance for your input.

The best light truck tire you can afford. Based on everything I have read on two different RV forums stay away from ALL trailer tires regardless of manufacturer or country of origin.

I am in the same boat.
If you're running 13" tires, it's hard to find light truck tires in that size.
You can probably order the Maxxis at Tire Discounters or just order some tires from Etrailer.com
I am just going with the Etrailer tires. About $111 including wheels, free shipping.

Let us know what you find.

I've heard lots of good things about Maxxis tires. I actually just ordered a pair through a local tire dealer, they were actually cheaper than any online price I've found.

When we bought our 17Z in 2010, new on the lot, the factory Duro tires looked 12 years old were grayish colored and cracked. The dealer replaced them with Maxxis before we signed the off on the deal. So far the Maxxis seem to be a good quality tire.

Like Dougtoms01 said above, you don't have alot of choice with the 13" wheels.

Buddy replaced his with maxxis and is very happy he also went to a d rated tire from c. I am going to do the same with mine. I feel the c rated tires on my trailer are very close to the load limit. Look into upping the load rating too.

Just replaced mine with Maxxis. Be sure to check the date/year made. It will tell you on the side wall. At this point only buy 2012/13 tires.

Somebody should come up with a kit so you can put duals on trailers. Tandem axle trailers with duals all the way around...way cool! Of course the same company could offer new wheel well covers too just like the dually pickups have.
