    I have Goodyear Marathon trailer tires, radials, 14". They work excellent and have 1000's of miles on them. I have a Triton double. You are not supposed to run car radials b/c of too much sidewall flex.

    Yes I know you shouldn`t use "P" tires and the trailers tires are prefixed "ST". but what are the benefits of using a radial tire VS a bias ply tire?...PR...

    Hey Pr!!!!!!!! I run radials, I have a 145R12 Carlise. I love them!!!!!! I too have about 1000 miles on them. Keep in mind you want to get a trailer tire not a car tire. As the tread pattren on car tires tend to allow the trailer to sway and wonder. As trailer tires are disinged to pull straight. I have them on my Triton elite, with a honda, and polaris ski I would guess the weight to be around 1600 LBS. maybe a little more.

    Oppssss, benifits...... They run cooler, They do not get as hot when going down the road and you will get more life out of them, but most will dryrott before you wear them out. No flat spots from sitting like bias ply. Disadvantage, not as easy to find if you have a flat? Cost?
