Why car tires over say Goodyear Endurance trailer tires?Weighed the Promaster on a truck scale.
Front axle 3300lbs
Rear axle 3140
Trailer axle 1680
Fuel mileage was a concern, load balance seems good.
Replacing trailer tires with car tires today, don't want a blow out or 2.
The tires you mentioned look great. Ratings are good too. Prices are acceptable as well.Why car tires over say Goodyear Endurance trailer tires?
Another Promaster brother or sister.I made my van worse. I had a small leak in the gasket under my AC Unit when it rained. So, I replaced the gasket and put everything back together. Now, my AC doesn't work. And, I put some nice scratches on the roof. Awesome!
I changed out the cheap crap tires that came on my RPod due to low mileage blow out reports. The Goodyear Endurance are made in USA and have a pretty good following so that's what I put on the 'pod. They also make them in different load ranges.The tires you mentioned look great. Ratings are good too. Prices are acceptable as well.
Not sure about now but there was a time when trailer tires were frequently failing. The year old tires on my tag a long have less than 10k miles and upon inspection are junk. A lot of Airstreams have been damaged by bad and pricy trailer tires. So, follow this, a car tire is more likely to be of acceptable quality than a trailer tire that likely might never wear the tread out. Likely the side walls rot. Tire guy at Sams suggested I could get a weight and speed rated car tire easier than what I had on my trailer.
Well, tried to get tires at Sams, but they did not have any that fit, so I went to a trusted commercial tire place and purchased radial trailer tires.
That reminds me of the Mr. Bean episode in which he's brushing his teeth while driving his car and using the windshield wiper fluid to gargle and rinse! (Don't try this in real life, kids!!! 😜 )When I was a kid we'd adjust it to spray pedestrians. Somehow we thought that was funny.
Photos, please.Got tired of the vent mount phone holder. Cut a piece of ABS black plastic, clipped the phone to it and push it into the front of the clipboard section. This is working great. Very secure, good location, wireless charger and provides a little sun visor for the radio.
