Replacement Tire And Wheel Combination For Heavier Weight Rating Radial Tires


I am wanting a 13 inch radial tire that is rated for 1900 to 2000 lbs. I found many load range D but want the next level better. Currently running 175/80 Load C. Way too light of a tire. I am open too almost any option. If I have to, I can space the camper up a bit to get clearance for a 14 inch tire. I would rather stay with a 13 though.


Expert Reply:

Currently the Karrier ST175/80R13 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10210 load range D is the highest weight capacity available for the 13" wheel size at 1,650lbs.

I recommend the Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 14" White Spoke Wheel # AM32161 which has a higher weight rating at 2,200lbs per tire. This wheel and tire combination is 1.1" wider and 2.2" taller than your current tire. You will want to ensure that you will still have the minimum 1" sidewall clearance and 3" of vertical clearance with the larger tires on your trailer.

Be sure that you do not exceed the weight capacity of your axle, suspension components or trailer rating.
