I am installing new tires
on my Burro
this week. My trailer came with passenger tires
not trailer tires
(after checking pricing I know why). That said I will be putting ST (Special Trailer) tires on and have the choice of bias or radial.
From what I have learned bias tires can handle a heavier load, but only at lower speeds, the radials are better for towing a lighter load at higher speeds. Knowing that I never load the trailer heavy (plenty of space in the truck bed), and like to drive close to the speed limit when towing, I am leaning towards the Radials. I understand the tow will be smoother, my mileage may improve slightly, and bounce factor may be reduced.
I will not consider passenger tires (P) or light
truck tires (LT) as I want to avoid sway, and side wall blowouts.
I am towing a 1982 Burro
, with and F150 V8 super crew cab, tires will be ST175/80R13.
All that said I wanted to hear some real world towing experience between the two options.
