Sorry to bring the subject up again but I'am in need for some advice on replacing my trailer tires. The trailer is a KZ sportsman 28 ft long. It has China bombs on it now 205/75r 14 c and they have worn down enought that I think they need to be replaced. Any advice would be helpful

Thanks

You can't go wrong installing a set of Goodyear Endurance which in your size are load range D.

You can't go wrong installing a set of Maxxis M8008 ST tires. They are available in 8 ply rating.
Be sure to have them balanced.

After a year of research on RV and Freight Transporter forums, I decided to go with Michelin XPS RIBS tires. They seemed to have the best reviews from people who put lots of miles on their vehicles each year. My second choice would have been Maxxis tires also due to the posts on those forums.

The XPS RIB is a commercial truck tire. I've been running them on my toy hauler for 5 years now and they are wearing fantastic. Tires on triple axle trailers really take a beating from scuffing and my RIBs are holding up well.

X2 though I cannot imagine buying any tire and not having it balanced. [emoticon]

If you ever checked the balance of your brake drums or checked your "balanced" assembly, then you would know why I balance the entire assembly at home.

Over 30+ rv members have reported issues with Maxxis ST8008. Maxxis says not all their 8008 has the nylon cap under the tread....but they don't say which sizes.
I would recommend a 14" Provider ST in the size you need. They have been around for 10+ years and have a good service record on trailering forums of all types (rv and non rv).
My next choice would be the Endurance from Goodyear.

And then another new gen Carlisle HD.

The Endurance and Carlisle HD have been on the streets for over 2 years and so far seem to be a much better tire than the ones they replaced.

OP you sure don't need a 16" load E tire on that small trailer. Kinda like pulling a single axle pop up with a MDT.
