Looking for some new tires for my boat. 17’Crestliner. I want some good tires that are durable and can handle trips to Canada and some tourney style abuse.

I have had Dico and they have made several trips up there. Goodyear also make a good trailer tire. It really doesn't matter as long as you get something with a high load rating. I think the ones on my trailer are load range C.

Be sure to go with a raidial type tire if you were running a bias ply in the past. They will run cooler and last longer, plus they pull much easier.

Big Bobber is right on point. The best IMO is the Goodyear Marathon Radial C rated.

If you are running the original tire from your trailer manufacturer you should expect one year at best with moderate to heavy useage. (some of the top of the line trailers are different)The best thing you can do is take that trailer in and get a good set of radial tires. It will be the best investment you can make!!

One thing, beings your in getting new tires have the guys put the loaded trailer up on the alignment rack and have the trailer aligned, this will add many miles on your tires. Paul

From what I've heard if you have bias ply tires on your trailer you should replace them with bias ply tires. Radial tires have too much side to side play and can start the trailer fish tailing at high speeds. This can be a bad thing when the tralier wants to pass the car your towing with...

Good Luck....

As always Chemist your info is golden. Of course I ment the trailer, didn’t mean to confuse you. Ha! If it helps I have a heavy duty shore lander trailer.
About getting the trailer up on the alignment rack and have the trailer aligned how does that work. What do they align? One more question; I have bearing buddies on the trailer, how often do you guys check the grease in them/or replace it? j0078811(t).gif

Alot of boat trailers are assembled in a hurried fashion. Sometimes the axle isnt quite square under the trailer, a simple sliding of the spring mounts will do the trick, camber and caster issues are dealt with by tweeking the axle itself to bring it into specs, I had this done to my trailer a couple years ago, my tires are wearing but in the correct way, before I was cupping on the inside, took it in, no longer a problem, that was 25,000 miles ago. No piece of fishermans equipment gets abused or neglected like a boat trailer..A good tire shop should be able to handle it..Good luck! Paul

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
