bias vs radial

Thanks for the info on changing the load rating from "D" to "C". I will stick with "D".

What do you think of radial vs bias? I am looking at Greenball Tow-Master bias st225/75/D15. Thanks. Jeff

I tend to lean towards the radical, although I am unbiased.

If the trailer came with radial tires, I would continue to use radial tires. There is a difference in the thought process for suspension design from the 505/60s bias ply tires versus modern radials.

I have TRC15225E Greenball Tow - Masters. Only rolled 800 miles so far. So no problems here. I am running 80 psi as recommended by Greenball.

Noise level inside on same roads no different than with GYMs.. I used cell phone on RECORD while pulling on test roads then compared with same roads using Greenball tires. That is if you trust your cellphone.

I.turned on the stereo.inside on same cassette tape while underway as a "level" set to compare.

As a life long truck driver I can assure you that radial tires are the only way to go. The only problem with radials is if they come apart they can do some real damage.
