love it, but the 17.5″ is a better tire for high mileage applications, and we’ll
show you why. The first 17.5″ wheel and tire we’re going to look at is the 215/75. This tire has a rating of 4,800 lbs. it’s a 16 ply tire and it has steel
belting throughout the sidewall unlike the load

  1. Do you sell tire maskers? I want to paint my 17.5" wheels on the trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NVpBF1eRBg

  2. just use commercial truck tires, or all position rated tires. you get the same load cap. but a realistic speed rating and far better made tires than any trailer tire on the market. im a hot shot driver and i've yet to blow a lt or heavy truck tire, yet i've never had any brand or size trailer tire last more than 6 months.
