90$ each plus tax for Carlisle 175/80/13 load c st tires will get 3 new ones tomorrow ...ouch! Should I hold out for load d rating? Not speeders at all.
Also will limp the trailer to escape
at some point I decided b/c ordering one here will be a big pain, plus install. I have the tires off both sides and trailer frame on blocks. Standing on hub can barely move the spindle arm, plus the stress cracks. Hmm....
What would be the stock axle setup for t4500 in terms of degrees up or down? And travel length? I know it is a trailing arm type but is it up to preference on ride height for example that sets the spec on the specific axle needed? I would shoot for dry weight
if 1600 lbs and would not mind another inch of height clearance.
Bit of debate 10" brakes
vs 7" and 2500 lb axle rating vs 3500 I read. I have no brakes
now so any would be better than what I have currently. We'd like to boondock as you say often and that means to us anyway travelling down bumpy logging roads. Suspect the 2500 axle would have best ride for this use. Do you air down the trailer tires a bit to provide some more "give" or is that the axles job? I know you generally cannot run under inflated tires.
Thanks! Much appreciate the advice.
