I got mine from Discount, Transmasters 235 / 80 R16. I go to Discount because they're the cheapest around here and the service is good. I'd do some shopping on the i-net. Find what you want, get a price from a local competitor, then go to discount with that price and let them beat it. You can save a few bucks that way. I paid about $200 a tire (that's with tax, road hazard, etc). Trailer tires ain't cheap.

Got mine from Discount in Victoria. After getting a price from Sam's , I told them at Discount what price I had and they beat it. They ordered my Maxxis tires , 1st set came in and were over two years old. I refused them and they sent another set that was only 4 months old. I will not put anything made in China on my trailer.

High pressure sales pitch at Discount? Wow, that is a new one. I only deal with Discount when it comes to tires and I have always found them to be pretty straight up with no catches, gimmicks etc. And as mentioned by everyone else they will do their dangedest to beat anyone else's price.

Maxxis has been getting good reviews on a lot of the RV forums. I went with BFG Commercial on our 5th wheel because I wanted a LT tire. We buy all our tires from Discount.

what ever you do get good trailer tires,there is nothing like having a blow out on the freeway,and if your pulling a travel trailer you could incure alot of damage also.

I have two sets of Maxxis, load range E's for my camper and Load range C for my boat. They are cream of the crop for trailers of any kind......

I've had good luck with Maxxis. That's what came on my TT and they lasted a while. You can buy them online, but I special ordered mine from Firestone (up by Greenspoint) and got a good price. Ask for Kerry. He also carries a couple of other brands. Stay away from Carlisle.

DO NOT put truck or car tires on your trailer. My dad used to be in auto safety and I remember that being a big no-no. LT rated tires can handle the necessary sidewall flexing.

My biggest problem finding trailer tires was in getting them in the right size, since my tires were not standard.

Brother in law blew out a couple of tires on his camper on the way up to the river last year. Went to Discount and bought a couple of car / truck tires. I agree with you and wondering how long they'll last. His camper is only about 5k pounds. My camper closer to 10k and I wouldn't think of doing it.
