Recommended 16 Inch Trailer Tires for Best Load Capacity and Smallest Height  


Hello, questions concerning trailer tires.I have toyhauler bumper pull trailer. Looking at the heaviest rating smallest height 16 inch tire. What do you folks recommend. Thxs.....


Expert Reply:

The smallest height and the heaviest rating are opposing desires for your 16 inch tires.

My recommendation for the strongest tire is the Provider ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # TTWPRG235R16. This tire is rated for loads up to 4,400 lbs at 110 psi and speeds up to 81 mph. The outer diameter is 31.73 inches.

The smallest height is the Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # TTWTRTM2358016E which is 30.79 inches diameter and rated for 3,520 lbs at 80 psi and speeds up to 81 mph.

The difference is about 1 inch in height and is 880 lbs in load capacity. Both are excellent tires, so if your axle capacity is 7K or under per axle, the shorter tires will be a great option.
