Am going to buy a new set (4) of ST 205/75/14R tires for my trailer (hauls a 1978 21 foot Glasply with VP 170 inboard and Honda 9.9 kicker). The choice of available tires brands out there is huge and the variation in prices extreme. Probably all from China and pretty much the same quality. Based on personal experience, any guidance from anyone on particular brands NOT TO BUY?

Thanks,
Mark

I can't tell you what tire brands not to buy but I had 3 bias-ply tires blow on a tandem trailer (lucky I put air in the spare & I recently just bought the boat/trailer). I limped home for 20 miles on two wheels in the breakdown line. I went out and bought 5 radials (R) tires next day. Always get Radials
