    We need to replace the tires on our 21' light weight travel trailer. Can we use passenger car tires at half the price of standard
    trailer tires? The trailer weighs 2800 empty wt. The change would also effect the size: 175/80R 13 to a 185/80R 13. :question: All advice and
    tips are appreciated.

    Hi bjsimpson, yes you can use car tires on a light TT, we had a 24.5' Jayco and when it needed tires we had car tires put on it and it was fine, just make sure you get at the least the same load rating as the trailer tires. Good luck. :) :laugh: :cool: :bleh: ;) :approve:

    Thanks for the reply and the O.K. using car tires. Do you have a brand or type of tire to recommend? :laugh:
