We just purchased a 2000 Excella 30'. It needs tires, so any suggestions on the best ones would be greatly appreciated.

Congrats on the new trailer.

Welcome to the forums.

Because this topic has been covered in GREAT depth and I couldn't do it justice in repetition,, let me suggest using the search feature for "tires", "GYM", "Michelin" and see what you see. No shortage of wisdom - and opinions - and humor :-)

Good luck!

If you're budget will allow, you won't be sorry if you spring for a set of 16" Sendel wheels and Michelin tires. I had Goodyear Marathons that came with the trailer. They were 3 years old with very good tread. Last fall my plan included new wheels and tires and to move the GYM's to my son's flatbed trailer. I found that one GYM had begun to separate at the tread on the inside. I could not have seen it from the outside. A careful inspection using my hand along the inside might have uncovered it. I only found it upon removing the wheel to switch the tires. I was lucky. This tire was on the verge and would have no doubt failed on our winter flight south. Do yourself a favor, if not in the immediate plan keep that thought for when you can.
