    Just my opinion I'm no professional in this subject, from what I have seen on about all brands of boat trailer tires if you work on your axels every time you see this on a set of tires your in for a lot of axle maintenance. You will never make me believe this problem is caused by axle problems,IMO it's tires most trailer tires are rated 1500 lbs and 55 mph speed,,,,,Now how often does either of those happen 20' boat fully rigged behind a 3/4 ton diesel truck. I have switched to an Endurance tire guess we will see how it works out.
    Thanks Mac Daddy thanked you for this post

    Been running 2 ply, B rated non radials . My boat weight is half of the possible carry weight . Figure these radials will work fine .

    On thing I came across is age of tires. I got some for my duck boat not long ago and they where 3 years old they where trying to sell me. I made the take them back off and get me some newer one’sb

    If I had a large boat I would insist on " d" rated tires. Wan't weigh 800 lbs. with me in it .

    I just put on 2 Carlisle st17580r13 on my boat trailer. D rated 8 ply. Max pressure says 65. Should i run max pressure all the time? I know 50 is the common but this tire says 65 to allow for max weight but my boat is not near max weight.
