    Tire size issue and question on double pwc trailer

    Just picked up a used but looks new Shorelander double trailer. I need it to carry our 06 and 07 Seadoo GTX's. The original owner had put 14" American Racing alum. wheels on there that I really like but with 175 65 14 tires. All of these tires are C rated..Closest thing I can find is 205 65 14. Anyone running anything this size as I would love to keep these wheels if possible.

    you really need a tire that's trailer rated Your current size 175/65R14 = 23x6.9R14
    ST 205/75R14 Load Range D 8 Ply Rated Kenda Karrier Radial Trailer Tire
    This is a common size trailer tire and is a load range D
    205/75R14 = 26.1x8.1R14
    It's about 1 1/2" taller (top and bottom) if you have the room this would be more tire than you will need and you can keep the wheels

    ST 145R12, 175/80R13, 185/80R13 are your options.

    Having a 05 Trition Elite WC11, I just replaced the original tires... It had 145R12 and I replaced them with 155R80-12 and still have plenty of room....

    Not sure, but will double check... He said they are trailer tires and he knows what I was hauling and how far we go to ride... Just got back from the NC coast..... He'll, he put the 4 on my Trition 4 place.... I know they were Carlisle tires...
    But glad you brought that up.... Thanks I will check...

    Thanks for for the heads up K447
