Tires and Wheels

At Southside Hitch, safety while towing is our number one priority. That is why we recommend you never use passenger radial tires on a trailer. Special trailer tires have stiffer sidewalls giving them better handling of vertical loads. In fact, the load capacity of a special trailer tire is 40% more than that of a passenger car tire. Their stiff sidewalls also help prevent your trailer from swaying back and forth.

Since tires are where your trailer meets the road, it is always recommended to keep them in proper working order. Always inspect your tires and wheels before hauling. Check the tread and make sure your tires are inflated to the appropriate pressure. Proper tire maintenance greatly reduces the chance of a blowout while towing.

When your trailer is not in use, avoid letting your tires sit in the same position for long periods of time. This will help extend the life of your tires and prevent flat spots from forming. Prolonged exposure to the sun can also cause your tires to deteriorate and crack. Using tire covers while your trail is not in use can help prevent this type of damage.

Eventually all tires will require replacement. Southside Hitch offers the best trailer tires and wheels from manufacturers like TowStar, Maxiss and Hercules. These tires and wheels are considered to be the best in terms of stability and durability. Let our staff help you choose the right tires and wheels for your trailer. We have the most popular sizes at affordable prices.
