Default Trailer tire recommendations

I have an LTD 45 tri axle gooseneck that Im getting fixed up to use and Im wondering what you guys recommend for tires? I have 235/85/16 Nitto highway tires on it now. (Tires off my dually when I put new Coopers on it)
Im looking to stay under 150.00 a tire and have the ability to mount and balance them myself.

Have looked at the good year trailer tire but have not had good luck in the past with them.
Can get Carlisle tires from a buddy but dont know much about them.
Would like to have US made tires also.

Thanks for any help Mike

go with F or G rated tires and because of the heat in Texas watch the tire pressure too

Goodyear has a new trailer tire that has gotten pretty good reviews so far. I don't own any but I like the fact that you can get them at Discount Tires and get an road hazard warranty on them.

I don't know if they are available in your size or not.

I am running some Trailer King tires I got from Amazon that are working out okay to date.

Good and cheap is a hard combination as I am sure you know, the local tire store is selling a good number of E rated Firestone TransForce to replace trailer tires and so far none of them have returned in a couple of years. I have seen a good number of them on race trailers also. The new Goodyear Endurance ( not the Marathon !!!! ) is suppose to be the "hot tip" according to the factory rep.........the tread pattern is quite different than what you normally see in order to run cooler, the difference is quite noticeable. Michelin XPS is the unmistakable direction but is way beyond the price range you are looking for along with Firestone commercial trailer tires.
