The most requested trailer improvements we get requests to swap the wheels that are standard on our single axle trailers as well as tandem trailers to accommodate all terrain tyres , and/or Land Cruiser rims. There are many advantages to reap by utilizing the upgrade options in the event that you want to purchase an trailer.
Why do you need to upgrade to all Terrain Tyres?
If you intend to pull your trailer off road for an extended duration or simply need to drive on rough roads frequently or even frequently, then an all-terrain tire upgrade for your trailer will make a lot of sense. We can provide and install 15x7LT All Terrain wheels as well as tyres to all of our trailers available for sale and to enhance their durability and flexibility under the most demanding conditions.
One of the primary reasons why that you may decide to opt for all-terrain tyres on your trailer is because they are able to provide excellent grip on all roads, thanks to the tread design that is interlocking of an off-road tyre with the kind of handling that most street or on-road tyres provide. The soft rubber compound can also be a factor in their flexibility and capability to deal with various road conditions and surfaces. All terrain tyres have reinforced sidewalls, which increase the capacity to carry loads that is crucial when towing a large or loaded trailer.
There are a few disadvantages to be aware of when using any tyre that is designed for terrain for instance, the tread pattern is known to cause more road noise and they’re susceptible to cupping, specifically when the suspension of your trailer isn’t working properly (although turning your trailer’s tyres regularly will help reduce the possibility of this).
The reason? Land Cruiser rims and tyres are an excellent option
If you are towing a trailer on an SUV or 4WD upgrade with Land Cruiser rims and tyres could provide you with many advantages. With our improvements you have the option of the 15″ and 16″ rims, as well as the 5 or 6 stud setup.
One of the most beneficial advantages of the rims and tyres that you have on your trailer that are identical to the ones on your towing vehicle is that you will be able to have fewer spares to carry, since should you require changing wheels, you’ll be able to make use of the same spare on either your trailer or 4WD. This is particularly beneficial when you’re laden or traveling across long distances.
Another advantage, particularly if you’re towing over the ground that is muddy or sandy, is that you’ll have a wheel track that is identical to the one you’re using. This means that the wheels of the trailer be essentially following the same tracks of tyres made by your towing vehicle providing a smoother ride, and less resistance and drag. This can also reduce the wear and tear on the tyres of your trailer and can improve the efficiency of your fuel.
