Trailer tyres are made to perform the same way as any other car tyre. The one difference is the weight these tyres are designed to sustain are higher than that of a car. The tyres need to be able to turn smoothly and in sync with the car. As a trailer is shifting lanes, the undercarriage can lift slightly. Extremely abrupt shifting can tip the trailer over but in simple and controlled shifting the tyre’s sidewall prevents the shift in weight from reshaping the tyre.
To improve on the road comfort, some trailer tyres have steel bands along the spine. The bands absorb vibrations while giving better support to the tyre from the inside.
Where to Buy?
You can buy trailer tyres from car tyre shops. The purchase depends on the size of your trailer. If the rim size of the trailer is in the range of car tyres than a tyre shop will have.
For some trailers, you have to find a shop that carries truck tyres. Trailers using very large tyres share some common construction techniques with truck tyres, and that is the place to find them.
Consulting a shop is a good move as it can help you find the best trailer tyres for the money.
The price of trailer tyres depends on the make and model of the tyre you want to buy. The weight of your trailer gets a say in the tyre choice, and the rim size is right behind it. Never be tempted into buying cheap trailer tyres that have been used. Since you don’t know how they were used it compromises your safety.
