White Wall Tire 225/75/R15 Supplier list

Hello,

Does anyone have a good contact for a ST/LT with white walls. Needs to be above load rating C, and don't wish to use an auto tire.

225/75R15

Best regards,

Sam.

As far as I know, no one makes ST or LT tires with white walls. Every trailer I've seen with white walls had passenger car tires, or the tires were very old, or both.

White Wall in a ST or LT

So far I have one company that can do them in the correct build quality for a trailer eg ST/LT -

Could anyone add to this list to give more options -

Dave
Motorspot, Inc. - 760-731-8303
Discount Wide Whitewall Tires White Walls

He can have tires prepared to your order that are ST or LT rated. I 've attached some information on what they look like. This is not the exact tire and the cost may be slightly higher.


A few bits (covered by previous postings) about using auto tires etc -


Question: Can I run passenger car tires on my vintage trailer?

Answer: It is not a good idea. There are significant differences between passenger car tires and “Special Trailer” (ST) tires. A passenger car tire is not designed to carry heavy loads for extended periods of time while an ST tire is built for such purposes as well as low rolling resistance, long-life and stability while towing. It should be noted that an LT or light truck type tire will work as an alternative to an ST tire.

An ST tire is engineered to carry ten percent more load than a similar sized passenger car tire. As a result, the tire may have different steel belts, plies, beads, thickness and diameter as compared to a passenger car tire. The treads are also created to minimize the tires squirming around. The tires also contain different materials that allow the tires to stand-up better to the elements while in storage.

One big concern when running a passenger car on a trailer is that the side walls are not as strong as an ST tire and can aggravate trailer swaying. The flexible side walls of a passenger tire could cause the trailer to sway badly enough that the driver could lose control. We wouldn’t want to risk injury to life or limb or to your special vintage trailer by using the wrong type of tire.

Coker tire makes a lot of whitewall tires. I doubt they have any ST tires. They may have a whitewall LT tire or a P tire that can carry the weight of a vintage trailer.

I am close to being the guinea pig on this. I want them very much. I also have just powder coated my wheels a nice color and the wide whites will look great.

If you call dbtire, they will make a white wall on any tire you want.
