Well, I really don't have a heavy boat, all total I'll bet around 1500# give or take a few. 1975 Miller 19' bubble deck jet with a 460 Ford, so maybe I could get by with a lighter tire.

Tires

I just bought some from for my travel trailer at America's Tire. Less than a hundred buck a piece and they had them on in less than an hour. Great service and good warranty. I would check them out.

Well here in CA Discount tire centers and Americas tire are two different companies. But in other states they are the same. Also Discount tire centers are a so cal based company and the the furthest store north would be Fresno.

gawnca,
As for what tire to use they make 6ply trailer tires that would suit you good. If you want the cheapest tire go with a cheap car radial tire but remember that it well only be a 4 ply and the side will give more then a trailer tire.

Tell me what the advantage would the 6 ply tires be on my duel axle trailer with the light weight?

I found America's Tire on Florin Rd. All I can find is a regular tire online for replacement.

If you want to make a trip to Gilroy, I will give you a great deal on 5 almost new 14" radial's that I took off my trailer when I upgraded to heavier duty tires (due to the weight). They would be fine for a light boat like yours. :)devil

Goodyear Marathon Trailer Tires

I highly suggest these tires. They are a little more money buy well worth it. If you google them you will find many comparisons made with them and they are definitely a step above. I have them on all my trailers. Some of the "standard" trailer tires are cheap tires made in china that "blowout" frequently on the freeway and during hot weather, kinda like when we are all going to the river on during the summer and it is 110 + degrees...

If you have a light boat you could probably get away with less tires. But for peace of mind. Besides who wants to change a tire on the side of the freeway in 110 degree weather.

Thanks for the offer but the gas would kill the savings. LOL ;)
