Recommended 225/75R15 Size Tires with a Load Range of E for a Boat Trailer


My boat weighs 1900 lbs dry. Running st205/75D14 and tires wear out on inside and outside. I am guessing to heavy a load for current tires. I have replaced axle with torsion type. Single axle trailer, What do i need to for a 6bolt 235/75 R15 LRE tire? Or best course of action other than tandem wheel trailer!!

Although we don't have any tires in the 235/75R15 size we do have the 225/75R15 size. If you are only looking for tires then I recommend the Goodyear Endurance # 724857519 which has a load rating E (2,830 lbs at 80 psi) and a speed rating of 87 mph. This is the best tire that we have to offer in this size.

For a tire and wheel combo that has a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern I recommend the Contender # AC225R6SMEQ. This has a load rating E (2,830 lbs at 80 psi) and a speed rating of 81 mph. This is still a great choice for a tire and it comes on a standard silver mod wheel.

If the inside and outside treads were wearing prematurely on the tires on both side of your trailer then that is an indicator that you didn't have the tires inflated enough. To avoid this you want to fill the tire to the psi rating on the sidewall of your tires.

Attached are some review videos of the above-mentioned products for you to check out.
