Is It Okay If Trailer Weighs Exactly 2,100 lbs When Loaded and it has Tire Capacity of 2,100


I have a LTWC11 triton trailer for two PWC. When they are full with gas the total weight between the two and the trailer is about 2100 lbs. I got tires that are rated at 1050 lbs each, which together will haul at a max 2100 lbs. How concerned should I be that the max rating is what I am hauling?


Expert Reply:

If you are absolutely certain that your trailer when loaded would not exceed 2,100 lbs then you wouldn't need to worry as you should be fine.

I would strongly recommend you keep your tires inflated to their maximum psi though.

If a trailer tire is inflated to a lower air pressure than the maximum, the amount of weight that the tire can carry will be reduced. If a heavier load is put on the trailer tire than what is recommended for that air pressure, the sidewall of the tire could heat up and cause the tire to fail.

I attached an FAQ article on trailer tires for you to check out as well.
