    I found some 8 ply 13in tires on Etrailer.com. They are in Wentzville,Mo. Thanks for all the advice.

    Probably a dumb question but is the lug pattern on a 5 lug 13" rim the same as for a 12" rim. I'd like to change my 12" to 13" if it will clear my fenders. My boat is probably under 1000# but I tow it to south Florida each year and after 2 trips the thread is worn down a good bit. Even wear on them so I don't think it is alignment or balance issues. Seems just towing over 1000 miles at interstate speeds takes a lot out of them. Mu local trips throughout the year are more frequent but less that 50-80 miles round trip.
    This current pair are Kendra load range C and have 2 trips on them and I'm not sure they are good for a 3rd one.

    Most utility and boat trailers I have had were "Ford Pattern" wheels, and the lug patterns were the same. One thing that can bite you on this is the size of the center hole. Some drums require the larger hole, some use the smaller hole.
    Sounds to me that what you are after is a larger tire OD that will fit in the fender well of the trailer, and I can see why. If you could find a 15" wheel and tire from somebody, try it on your trailer and examine for how much clearance is left. Compare that tire size with this "Tire Size Comparison Chart" and you could find what works well for you and your trailer. Good luck.

    Let us know how they do. I got my Carlisles from Amazon for about $4 more than the Greenball tires in your link.

    My rig is just a few months old and I noticed a vibration coming back from Crankfest. My trailer has some kind of Chinese off-brand tires on it and one tire has almost completely worn thru. I checked all the pressures and one was just a couple of pounds under the 50psi of other 3 so they weren't low. I do run at or above the speed limit on Interstates and some tires just won't hold up to the high speeds. With all the tournament travel we will be doing this fall, I checked several on-line opinion polls on trailer tires and the Carlisle Radial Trail HD was near the top in all polls. I used to run Carlisles on my enclosed trailer that Slab now owns and was always pleased with the way they rode and held up. Yesterday I ordered 4 of the Carlisle Radial Trail HD ST205/75R14D/8 8 plys for about $260 from WalMart On-Line. I'll pay the service center to mount and balance them.

    I called my trailer manufacturer and he said to be sure to check the wheel that the bad tire is on. Many times the wheel can be as much as an issue as the tire and he said they see a couple each year that was sold to them that can't be balanced. The factory will replace those. He also said they may have to go back to Carlisle tires like they used to put on all their trailers.

    I hate to have to buy tires for what is essentially a new trailer but that is better than sitting on the side of the Interstate in the middle of a rain storm at night trying to change what's left of a bad tire.
