In Reply to: I'm gonna try this next... opinions? "D" rated tires posted by Ddd [] on Thursday, March 28, 2019 at 12:16:49 :

So yea my trailer ain't the best I could get, but working with what I have I'm thinking this might be the issue:

The tires are under sized (or under rated weight capacity wise ) for the trailer.

Here is what the tire has on the sidewall:

6 PR
Load range "C" tubeless
Max load single 825kg (1820 lbs) At 50 psi cold
Max load dual 730kg (1610 lbs) At 50 psi cold

Assuming the 6 PR means ply rating?

Looks like in a dual axle configuration these tires are only rated to 1610 lbs each, or a total of 6440 lbs.

Am I reading that right?

If so, I'm really maxing out this trailers tires.

I'm thinking the idea to upgrade to a load D rated tire should help?
