Recommended 235/80R16 Trailer Tires for Fifth Wheel Trailer


I have a 2016 cougar fifth wheel. GVWR 12305 lb. current tires are st235/80r16E. I want to replace them with something I can rely on not to blowout. Help?


Expert Reply:

For your 2016 Cougar Fifth Wheel trailer I recommend using the Westlake # LHWL401, which are ST235/80R16 tires with a load range of E. They have a load capacity of 3,520 lbs at 80 psi; you will want to make sure your trailer tires are always filled to this psi in order to make sure you get the best performance and keep your tires from potential blowouts. A lower air pressure will lessen the tire's capacity, cause the sidewall to heat up and possibly blow.

This tire has a speed limit rating of 75 mph and 2 years of roadside assistance so if you do happen to get a flat you will be taken care of. I've added a link to a video review of this tire for you to check out as well.
