Hello, I need to replace my st185/80 r13 tires on my 2514g Forest River PUP.
I currently have Castle originals that came with the camper. Any suggestions for tire brands and places other than RV dealerships that replace camper tires would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

I have used recstuff.com in the past, their prices were better than most. Well, at least at that time, I haven't needed tires in a little while.

I never had any exploding trailer tires once I switched over to using Discount Tire. Yes, I always kept them at the proper PSI and didn't overload the trailers.

Not that you can't source good tires from a local mom & pop, or from etrailer.com/tirerack.com/Amazon, but especially while traveling, it is nice to have chain that you can get to in case there is a warranty/service issue.

I bought what my local family owned business had availabe in 13" radial, 75 mph rated, and they did great (minimal visible wear, I need to check tread depth) I am all done with mail ordering trailer tires.

How many tires exploded on you before that? I would think its more about the tire itself then where you bought them though.

Just make sure you get the weight, speed rating correct and decide on radial or bias tires. Radials run cooler and track better, but bias can withstand puntures and are made for more like dirt roads, people still like them for the hyway. Me I like radials.
