Trailer Boss Repair Department–Best in Northwest

Many people do not pay close enough attention to their trailer tires. As we sale trailers in Tacoma and Seattle in Portland, Vancouver or Rochester, we want people to understand that tires are an auxiliary item to your trailer and an easy item to overlook.

Make sure you know how to check your tire pressure. Keep a pressure gauge in your truck and use it if you aren’t sure. The sidewall of your tire should tell you how much air is supposed to be in those tires.

As a general guideline tire pressures coordinate with the load capacity which should also be listed on the sidewall of your tires.

For example:

  • C-range tires—approximately 1000 lbs to 2500 lbs—require a maximum PSI of 50.
  • D-range tires–approximately 1800 lbs to  3000 lbs–require a maximum PSI of 65
  • E-range–approximately 2800 lbs to 3500 lbs–should be at 80 PSI

These pressures are necessary to handle the increased capacity.

Tire pressure should be check the tires are cold because as you drive they heat up and expand.

If you are not checking your tire pressure on a regular schedule you may find certain patterns.

  • If you have baldness in the center of your tires they’re over inflated. You’d be wise to let some of that air out.
  • If you have baldness on the outer edges of the tires they’re under inflated. You’d be wise to add some air.
  • If you go to check the baldness patterns on your tires and find that they’re completely bald without any tread at all, then you are overdue for a replacement.

Legally you’re tires need to be replaced when they have 2/32″ of remaining tread depth but obviously at BALD you’re a little past that.
