Can Different Tire Brands be Used on Tandem Axle Trailer


Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range D Recently purchased a used 17foot travel trailer dual axle. Took it out for a short camping trip. Blew a tire. Changed to spare and found a tire store. Purchased only ST they had which was a RM 76 rubber master. Next day after set up camp, decided to take off spare and swap with new tire. Seen that spare started separating, unhooked trailer went back into town just 20 minutes away and purchased another RM for spare. OK so have two new tires. My question is, is it safe to mixinch tire brands even though same tire size and all radials? Should I have the RMs on one side tracking and have these Karriers tracking each other on other side or should same type be on same axle?? Would rather buy your Karriers but maybe better to stay with the RMs? thanks in advance and sorry for long winded explanation.


Expert Reply:

If all of your trailer tires are the same size, construction, and Load Range you would be just fine. I would may recommend having matching tire brands on each axle since you have 2 and 2 of each kind.

I attached a help article on trailer tires for you to check out as well.
