When you select new special trailer (ST type) tires for your pontoon boat trailer you first want to ensure you choose replacements that can handle the weight of the fully loaded trailer, and second, tires that provide enough clearance in the fender wells or wheel wells. Take the GVWR of the trailer (gross vehicle weight rating) and divide by the number of tires on the trailer to find what weight each one needs to be able to handle.

The most common size of tire on a pontoon boat trailer is ST205/65-10, such as Kenda # AM3H480
which is a Load Range E tire mated to a 5-lug white wheel. This 205mm width is the widest tire we offer to fit a 10-inch rim. This tire will fit a rim that is 10-inches diameter by 6-inches wide.

You do not ever want to mix different tire sizes or different load ranges on a trailer.
