What Load Range Tires to Use for a 16,000 lb Trailer with 7,000 lb Axles


What load range tires would you recommend for a 16000K tandem axle 5th wheel trailer? 2016 Redwood SQ38SRQ 7000K axles.


Expert Reply:

For a trailer with 7,000 lb axles I recommend using Load Range G tires, like the Westlake # LHWL410. Load Range G tires are rated for 4,400 lb at 110 psi when using a single tire, and 3,860 lbs at 110 psi when using dual tires.

If you are getting new wheels with the tires, like part # LHAXSO513B, make sure you select the right bolt pattern as well.

I have attached a demonstration video of the products that I mentioned and some helpful links related to tire sizing and frequently asked questions.
