Lets talk tires again

I have the 2012 Bullet Premier 19, it's weight is 4200 pounds dry, the trailer probably has 700 pounds supplies in any given time when traveling on trips, & my tires are ST205/75R 14C.

So far we have towed it approximately 4500 miles on the original tires with no issues. I check my tires before each trip and make sure they are inflated to the recommended pressure per the manufacture. I've read some of the threads here on tire blowouts and problems. So far in my inspections I see nothing to indicate any visible tire problems

If to avoid any unforeseen future problems what tires would you recommend for replacements

Thanks in advance for your suggestions

I recommend a TPMS setup. No need to pay for replacements yet, and the setup will continue to work after you finally DO need to replace the tires. No matter what you buy there is a chance of a blowout and the resultant damage to the trailer can be thousands of $$$.
I feel very confident with the pressures and temps displayed on the screen of out TST507.

Michael, there are a number of tire-knowledgeable people on this site who hopefully will weigh in on your dilemma. CWtheman is one who comes to mind. If you don't get the answer you are looking for look him up on this site and send him a PM. He'll get you started in the right direction.

To feel more comfortable with your replacement tires you could step-up to the ST215/75R14C without having to worry about changing rims but still pick-up another 100# of load capacity per tire.

Nothing is foolproof with trailer tires. Added load capacity is always desirable with replacements especially with some that are good fitments. The optional size above is probably less than 3/8" taller than the OE tires. Air them to 50 psi and continue your current tire maintenance program.

Since you asked...Maxxis tires are a good brand.
