Hey guys I need to replace my trailer tires with some new ones. They are Goodyear Marathon Radial 205 75r14. I know there is a thread going around about which tires are better and so on but what I am looking for is anyone who has a hookup or works at a tire shop that can hook me up with a decent price. Everything around here is like $440 for 4 installed. Just trying to save some money.

Thanks

Erik.. hows it going??.. hows the recovery?? Good I hope..
Are you going with actual trailer tires or just regular radials.. We sell tires at my dealership so I can see what I can do..
Off the subject ... I still have your wakesurfboard.. We need to hook up so I can give it back to you.

Kevin,
The recovery is going well. Im actually taking the boat out in about 1 hour up at diamond valley lake. Just taking the family out for a couple hours to cruise about.

About the tires!!! I do not know much about tires , and from what I am told I will need to replace my old ones with Trailer Specific Radials. Will regular Radials work??? what do you have on your trailer? Im pretty dumb when it comes to tires so you will have to forgive me.

As far as the wakesurfer, just let me know next time your going to Elsinore or Sna V and I can meet you there or you can swing it by my house after a session at Elsinore.

See you soon
Erik

E.

You will want to get Trailer specific tires, (match the class to your Marathons) They have thicker sidewalls and will greatly reduce the chance of blowouts. I don't remember the brand that I replaced mine with, I got them at discount tires in Encino. About $220 total. They were not a major brand, but had a warranty and were trouble free for 3 plus years. It is the Carlisle's that peolple had trouble with,including myself.
