I talked with a tire dealer this morning, locally, they told me that Goodyear makes an Endurance in 215/75r14. They didn't have any in stock but could order them and get them in a couple of days. The only difference is that the 215's are a little wider than the 205's. I measured my TT and the 215's will fit. I ordered them. Total was $602.00, that's everything even put on my TT. Then the guy says they will probably be delivered on Friday. We are having a sale this weekend that anyone that buys a set of 4 tires gets $100 off. So your total will be $502.00. YIPPEE!!! Made my day!

So Goodyear Endurance 215/75r14 is what is going to be put on. Hopefully no more blowouts!

I thought you could find some GY Endurance if you kept at it.
Most people just want to sell what is on the shelf.
Great tires so far.

That's a great deal!

Yep, and when the drivers rear went out, you immediately overloaded the other three tires. Repeat for the other two losses -- the remaining tire on that side

Doesn't matter how quickly you reacted -- they still had to carry extra weight, and suddenly at speed.


Unless they are torsion axles not true. A standard trailer with an equalizer between the springs distributes the weight between the axles evenly, that's why it's called an equalizer.


However, the range of the equalizer function IMO won't compensate for for the loss of a tire nor is it designed to do so.

The distance the axle can move is quite a bit more than height of the sidewall of a tire.

Again my previous statement clearly has the caveat IMO in it since I'm no expert and I don't see how that small "equalizer triangle that connects to two axles springs together would allow that much movement to ensure that each ground contact have equal weights on them. I just know I sure would not assume to be the case and I would still replace tires in pairs because of the excessive overloading should you loose one tire on a side of a tandem axle trailer.

^ And to that, I would not just replace a tire because it was "overloaded" for say 30 seconds while getting pulled off the road after a blow out.
Different story if the blowout isn't noticed and the trailer runs some distance on 1 tire.

On a vehicle you are riding in, I can see lower pressure for smooth ride. For a trailer, put them to max.
