Replacement Trailer Tires vs. Vehicle Tires for a Single Axle Trailer with 8.0 Tire on 14.5 Wheel

Question:

We have an old single axle trailer that has 8.00-14.5 tires. Is there a car tire size that we could replace them with?

asked by: Debbie


Expert Reply:

Passenger vehicle tires should not be used on trailers. Trailer tires are designed with a thicker sidewall that can accommodate higher air pressures and the weight of the trailer load. Trailer tires should also be inflated to their maximum pressure that is stamped on the sidewall. The trailer tires that we carry are not intended to be used at speeds over 65 miles per hour, unless stated otherwise on the tire.

With the size that you provided that style of tire is typically used on mobile home axles. This tire size is not very common but we do have some available. The Kenda # AM10321 fits an 8 inch tire on a 14.5 inch wheel.

I have included a link to the product mentioned above, a brief video on it, as well as a helpful article about trailer tires.
