Special trailer tires are specifically designed to meet the needs of HEAVIER trailers, such as those for recreational vehicles (RV) and horse trailers.
These tires are thicker, have a greater load capacity, and feature higher-grade materials than regular light truck tires. The average lifespan of ST trailer tires is from three to five years.
Different types of trailers will require different kinds of tires. For example, a flatbed needs heavy-duty tires to carry its load, while horse or utility trailers call for lighter-duty models.
The weight of the load being carried can significantly impact the life of your trailer tires. The heavier the load, the MORE strain is placed on your tires, which can shorten their lifespan.
Exposure to extreme temperatures or harsh UV rays will cause the rubber of your tires to degrade more quickly, reducing their lifespan.
