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

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
