Trailer tires, loads and inflation
I heard your radio program back in June when you talked about trailer tires , it struck home because we had just returned from a trip with our travel trailer during which we had 2 blowouts on our trailer within 125 miles. The tires where 3 years old , it was over 100 degrees and both the gray and black water tanks where full. I missed your recommendation for trailer tires. Thank you for your help.
You must look at the max load (single) written on the sidewall of each tire and see if they all add up to much more than the gross vehicle loaded weight (GVW) of your trailer. Another way to determine the GVWR is each axle times it’s maximum load rating. So two five thousand pound axles would give you a 10,000 lb GVWR.
