Anyone tried the Yokohama Y356 LT tires?

My sister-in-law has a SOB 21' trailer with 14" wheels. She's been running Maxxis M8008 tires in ST 205-75/R14. The tires are about 6 years old, mostly just sitting in the back yard and showing lots of dry rot. It's time to replace them before a trip in December. I'm no fan of ST tires so I was trying to find something in an LT tire. Couldn't find anything in a Michelin or BF Goodrich, so I checked Yokohama and up popped the Yokohama Y356 LT 195-75/R14 Load Range D, 25.8" dia., and 1710 lbs load capacity, rated for 99 mph. It's about 5/16" less in diameter than the Maxxis that came on the trailer.

Anyone have any experience with this tire? I saw it on Tire Rack: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes

I had to modify this post because I didn't realize that we were talking about going from an ST205/75R14 Load Range C with a load carrying capacity of 1760@ at 50 psi to an LT195/75R14 Load Range D with a load carrying capacity of 1710# at 65 psi.

Given what I now know, this seems like a reasonable swap.

Me too...
I remember researching these awhile ago for the boat trailer, wondering why a C load would have a higher rating....it's a trailer tire stoopid.

Trailer Tire ST215/75R14 Radial 14 in Load Range C 1870lb by Loadstar.

I think the 185/R14 LRD would be a better choice. It will provide load capacity in excess of the OE tires.

Well.....my nephews went off to buy tires for the trailer at the local store which of course was not a Yokohama dealer. So they got what the dealer had....Carlisle ST tires. Aaaaarrrrrge! The Carlisle has the highest number of complaints of any trailer tire at the NHTSA.
