Unfortunately some ST trailer tires are no good the day they roll out of the plant, let alone several years later. Buy Maxxis and go up a load range. Problem solved.

All tires are subject to UV effects if left uncovered for extended periods of time. I've taken to purchasing tire covers for just about everything I leave out. I figure I can spend $30 to protect a $600 investment. Seems to work well so far.

That being said, you could definitely get better tires. Now's the perfect time since you have to replace them anyway.

What is called dry rot kills more tires than simple tread wear. Its the sun that does the work. Cover them from the sun to extend the life of a trailer tire. If already cracked, the damage has been done.

The sun and weather can cause a lot of havoc on TT tires.

I replaced mine last week with Carlisle RH? maybe HD, I would have to double check. They a new line from Carlisle, they are load range D tires, speed code 99N (87 mph). We just put on 200 miles on the new tires over the weekend. Absolutely loved them. My 23B normally tows very nicely, and it towed even better with these tires.

I think I paid about $530 for five tires installed and balanced. Got them from Discount Tire.

This may be a silly question but are you supposed to rotate trailer tires?

I notice ours are brownish from dirt/dust I guess whenever we pick up trailer. I spray them with a tire conditioner before dropping off again. I'd cover them but afraid they'd get stolen. People even stole our wood chocks for goodness sakes!

I have been told yes you should rotate the tires. How often depends on how many miles and the type of driving. Discount Tires stated due to the tire scrubbing I have trying to get my HTT into my driveway, I should rotate at minimum once a year. They stated I should monitor the tires and as I notice wear, I should rotate them.
