Recommended 205/75R15 Trailer Tires for Utility Trailer

Question:

My 5 x 8 utility trailer I bought several years ago came with General P215 75 15 tires. I would like to changeover to trailer tires. My axle is rated for 3500#. As a homeowner and DIY I haul mulch, topsoil, block, gravel, etc.. Rarely I haul over 100 miles. But I want to be ready. What do you recommend?

Helpful Expert Reply:

For a utility trailer with a 3,500 lb axle the best option is the Goodyear Endurance ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire # 724861519 because it is designed with a reinforced sidewall for stability, has an inner liner to help maintain the tire's pressure along with a very handy tread wear indicator so you can easily see the amount of tread remaining on the tires. Additionally, the Endurance is one of the few trailer tires still made in the USA.

This size 205/75-15 tire will be 0.6" smaller in diameter and 0.4" narrower than your current 215/75-15 tires. You are smart to switch to trailer tires because they are going to be a much better option for longevity and durability when hauling.

The the Goodyear Endurance # 724861519 is a load range D tire that has a maximum capacity of 2,150 lbs at 65 psi so a pair of these will perfectly handle the capacity for a trailer with an axle capacity of 3,500 lbs.

I have added a link to a video review of this tire for you to check out as well.
