Just got word from a Yuma local that LEO's were checking for and citing people without trailer approved tires over at Squaw Lake. Anyone not running trailer specific tires had any issues with this?

Wow! Even CA doesn't have a law THAT specific! All the tire has to be is load-rated for the lbs and have designated minimal tread-depth for steering (4/32) and drive(s) (2/32).

Never hear of a trailer-specific tire law.

Wow!! California actually doesn't have a law that another state HAS? I'm writing my congressman. But i can't do it via my cell phone while driving because of the cell phone law...and even if i could, the glare through the window's the law prohibits me from tinting is too much...DAMNIT!:|err

As far as citing for non=specific trailer tires...wow..that's a humdinger. There are some tires that are rated for "any position" like the michelin xps rib...but on the sidewall it doesn't have the "ST" prefix. I wonder if they're up on their game on that!

Weight ratings...maybe..non trailer tires..that's wild! I changed the original tires on my fifth wheel because they didn't even add up to enough weight that the trailer was rated..empty! I did it mainly so if i got stopped it's one less thing i'd have to worry about.

One trick you should do if you're near Yuma is pull a single jet ski trailers, but put 19.5" trucker dually tires on it...see if they feel that's safe ;)
