Can Trailer Tires be Upsized from 4.80-8 to 5.70-8


I have a small trailer that currently has 4.80-8 tires. I would like to replace those with your Kenda 5.70-8 bias tires K353. Those should fit on my current rims, right?


Expert Reply:

Both the 4.80/4.00-8 Trailer Tire, like # AM10002 that you selected, and the 5.70-8 Trailer Tire, like # AM10010, are designed to fit on 8 x 3-3/4 inch rims, so the larger tires will mount on your rims.

The larger tire will be 2 inches taller, which means you will have 1 inch less of fender clearance.

I attached a help article on trailer tires plus a review video for the # AM10010 for you to check out.
