I purchased the trailer new from a dealer. The tires are the same size load as listed on the manufacture sticker

I was looking at the goodyear but it seems their loads range g has a lower weight rating then other load G I have looked at???? So looking for recommendations.

Current Tires: ARISUN CR960A ST235/85R16 129/125L
Load Range G
DOT 8DJL CN2 AND IN CIRCLE NEXT TO THAT IS 1515 (I AM GUESSING THAT IS DATE CODE)

5ER info : GVWR 17000lb GAWR 7000lb (Dual Axle)
rsl,

Your Arisun tires are warrantied by the manufacturer for 5 years from the date of manufacture. You say you bought it in April 2016 and the tires were manufactured the 15th week of 2015, so your tires are still covered. You can download the manufacturer's warranty here: http://www.arisuntires.com/index.php/service/service

Click on the third tab: "WHAT IS COVERED UNDER THIS WARRANTY AND FOR HOW LONG" and it will explain the terms.

I'm not suggesting you replace the tires with the same type/brand, but if the manufacturer will replace them for "pennies on the dollar", it's an option you might want to consider.

If you do contact the manufacturer, please let us know what kind of service they provide to you.

Good Luck

I think this is the one to use to use for his trailer tires. It's from page 21 in the current Keystone ceneric owner's manual.

I have been running Hartland ST235/85R16's (Load Range G) for 2 years - a little over 20,000 miles. No problems. OEM was ST235/80R16's, Load Range E. Hartland's fit with no problem, rated for 81 mph. Found them on Discount Tires' website. I have been very happy with them. Trailer GVWR is almost 14,000 lbs. so I keep tires at 100 psig. They appear to be wearing very evenly.

As full time RVer's and my rig being under a metal barn cover 9 months of the year---then when down in the Desert for 3---I always keep the sunlight off of them, and dang...It's a 2015 keystone bought in 2014 late summer...but I don't have a crack yet on them. Ok...time for me to lay down with a high intense light and look closer.

Slman, "Ok...time for me to lay down with a high intense light and look closer." Actually it is time to lay down some green-backs for some new tires. Your tires may be as old as six years.
