For your gooseneck trailer, I recommend going with the Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire # LHWL401. This tire has a maximum load of 3,520 pounds at 80 psi and a maximum speed of 75 mph. This load range will provide more than enough combined capacity for your trailer, even when it is fully loaded. It is constructed with double steel belts and double polyester plies for a long life.

A great and unique feature on this particular tire is the length and content of its warranty. It comes with a 5-year warranty as well as complimentary roadside assistance for 2 years. If your trailer has a flat tire, you will simply need to call the help line and a technician will come change the flat for you. This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Keep in mind that the best way to extend the life of your trailer tires is to always have them inflated to their maximum psi and remain under their load capacity and speed limit.
