  • Help with trailer wheel size

    Hi all, I have a 18ft, 1990 Ranger 361V Comanche with original trailer. I just had a blow out on one of my trailer tires. I changed the tire, came home to research what tire to buy. This is my 1st time. I quickly found out that I have automobile tires on and not trailer tires. Could someone tell me what load range and what size tire to buy. Thanks in advance

          Thanks for all that great information. I am at work now, but when I get home I will check for that sticker. And I will take your advice and get the radials. You guys rock!!!!!!

            Chance are extremely high that your tire blew due to old age or actually more likely, low inflation. Inflation critical on trailer tires!

              Thanks ahicks, I will definitely be more cautious of trailer tires for now on. Luckily I wasn't on a highway and could pull over quickly.

                  Just so you know, that is a passenger tire and needs to be derated by 10% for use on a trailer. You can also go with an ST tire of the same size and it will have a much higher rating.
