    255 70R 22.5 tires

    What brand of tires are you guys running in a 255 70R 22.5. And what air pressure do you run them at. Got some cheap china tires on my stepdeck this summer and noticed today one of the sidewalls has a split already. I run these at 110 psi.

    From what I have seen, Hankook is good.


    110 to 120 psi is what our company runs, and no, they don't buy Hankook, the last 2 new trailers they bought came equipped with them, and they lasted better than most.

    Sometimes, you have to take what they got or what they bring you.

    I ran Yokohama tires on my step when I had it they wore really even and last good. As for the tire psi I would run 100 psi.

    Kelly Springfield is a good tire its the comes of the same line as a Goodyear, however, Goodyear has stopped making the brand completely a couple of years ago, so whats out there is old inventory

    Check BF Goodrich ST 230. Had those on a car trailer & never had a issue. Probably won' get quite the life out of them vs a Michelin, but when I checked prices it was around $100 each difference.

    Also called half a dozen tire shops checking prices on these, big difference there too. Check with Bauer Bilt in the midwest, they were pretty competetive.

    How accurate is your speedometer and odometer? There are 2 22.5 low pro sizes used as drives and steers and therefore on trailers; 285/80R22.5, and 295/75R22.5.

    They have the same circumference and load ratings. You might see either size substituted for the other.

    I want to say the carhaulers that park in the lot with me with 255's on their drives run Yokohama's. Talk with them as they are the main ones that run them on drives and steers.


    As far as the OP, I run Bridgestone 250ed on my step. Great tire and we get them pretty cheap, so it makes it a winner in my book.
