Recommended Tires And Wheels To Replace 18.5/8.5-8 Tires On Triton Trailer


I have a Trition Trailer with 18.5x8.5x8 tires. The wheels have 5 holes on a 4.5inch diameter. Which wheels would work for these tires and trailer?

Expert Reply:

The tire size you can use as a replacement for your triton trailer is a 215/60-8.

If you want just the tire, I recommend part # AM1HP28 which is a Load Range D tire. This 8-ply tire has a load capacity of 1,165 lbs at 70 psi.

For a Load Range C tire only I recommend part # AM1HP26. This is a 6-ply tire and has a maximum load rating of 935 lbs at 50 psi.

Both of these tires are bias-ply tires and will work on the rims you have for your tires.

If you are looking for a wheel/tire combo for your trailer I recommend part # AM3H325. This is a Load Range D tire mounted on a steel galvanized wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern.

If you want a white powder coated wheel, I recommend part # AM3H323. This is also a Load Range D tire.

For a Load Range C combo I recommend part # AM3H310 for a white powder coated wheel and part # AM3H320 for a steel galvanized wheel.
