Trailer tire replacement
Here goes I have a Zeiman dbl trailer that came with 14 inch rims and passenger car tires size 195/60r14's. I have had 3 blow-outs and now want to switch out to trailer specific tires and want to make sure that I will not have a rubbing issue. What size would anyone suggest? The trailer carries an 02 rxdi and an 02 fx 140 plus gear.
Also temperture is on the extreme side for the travel usually in excess of 110 degrees from home to river. I would like to stay with the 14 inch if possible.
1 way trip is 175 miles we try to go at least for a couple of weekends and a big 9 day trip for vacation for the summer.
I think I am going to go with the 205/75d14's. need to find a dealer that will test fit them to see if there will be any rubbing issues. Thanks to all!!

I believe my double trailer has 5.30-14s on it. I'll double check the number tomorrow to be sure but I think that's it.

Never mind I just looked it up, It's 530-12. Looks like 205/75/14 is your best bet.

Hey...check how the leaf springs are installed on the trailer.....one side might be mounted backwards. I went throught the same crap; 3 blow outs, cause the right side spring was installed backwards by the dealership.

don't use car tires on trailers what ever you do. farm & fleet has great deals if you have one near you, there is a load rating as well probably a c rating will do
