just paid that for 2 trailer tires and I had sticker shock too but garage assured me that is the right deal for good trailer tires (and this is a great garage so I trust them) they do look good and are the right size, weight etc -
Okay, you've eased my mind - tires are ordered and will be mounted next week.
Now if I could only find the mystery leak in my gooseneck so my bed area stops getting soaked every time it rains...
Oh, and it's a 2000 Trails West 2 horse GN
just checked- 140 each, load rate E, metal valve stems, for a 3H slant with 4' short well GN. Four of them. I haul alone pretty often and a long way...I don't like to skimp on tires if I can afford not to
well let me just say that when you buy $70 trailer tires, they last less than a year before being BALD. Now I have the $144 trailer tires on again because the last ones went for four or five years. Sometimes going cheap is not saving money.
In 1980 I bought a 1962 Rice trailer from a race track buddy. Back then they were all the rage, if you could find one. Mine was the top of the line model, but had to be completely redone of course.
We did the floors, wiring, paint, the whole kaboodle, but tires - ugh. An outfit in Florida was the only one who carried them, and they quoted me over 400 bucks each. Plus the FET, plus shipping to Virginia, it would have been well over 2K.
I finally sold the trailer. It was just too much to try to fix the hydrolic brakes, put a break-a-way battery and switch unit on, and the tire situation vexed me to no end. The people who bought it had an auto shop. I wish I could find out how that all turned out.
