Tire Capacity of CE Smith # CE48810 Boat/PWC Trailer And Trailer Connector Compatibility

Question:

Will this fit with the harness that comes with the kit. Also the tires are rated for590 lbs but the trailer is rated for 800. Am I missing something or do I have to up grade tires and possibly fenders to get to 800 lbs rating to be safe with the tires. Thanks.

Helpful Expert Reply:

The CE Smith # CE48810 Boat/PWC Trailer you referenced is compatible with the 4-pole vehicle side trailer connector pictured in the photo you provided.

Each of the 4.80/4.00-8 Load Range B tires are rated at 590 lbs, for two tires the capacity would be 1180 lbs. You wouldn't need to upgrade the tires as they already meet the trailer capacity. Keep in mind, even though the tire capacity is greater than the capacity of the trailer, you'll still need to abide by the 800 lb capacity of the trailer.

I've linked you to an FAQ article about trailer tires.
