Untrue..Look at the Carlisle 700 15s Nice trailer tires.. I had bias on my other A/S for yrs.. Not 1 problem.. Ever see what a radial does to the side of a trailer when they blow out?? NOT PRETTY!!!..Bias just go flat...

and here is more bias for sale

Blow outs...

Hello Airboss,

I am also concerned about what radials do when there is a blow out....or should I say blow up! I have seen a number of AS damaged because of this. I have a 25FB and am thinking of swapping my marathons out for bias. Which bias would you recommend?

Thanks, Randy

Those Carlisles are the ones I removed. And, it isn't true that they don't blow out. But you're welcome to them, and good luck. Let us know what you find after a few years of use.

Yokohama makes a 7:00x 15 LT in a radial that looks like bias tire (if you like a vintage look) , I've had two sets on my '63 and been pleased with them. I replaced the first set on the basis of age and not treadwear. They came from Tire Rack.
