They also carry 17.5 wheels and tires for trailers. Many around here have bought them from Tredit. 6k axles have 6 lugs with 1/2" studs, 7k axles have 8 lugs with 9/16" studs and 8k axles have 8 lugs with 5/8" studs.


I have been thinking about the 17.5 wheels, but figured that would just make the trailer another 1 1/2 taller which I don' like. Are the wheels from Tredit all imports or do they handle USA wheels also. I will try contacting them on Monday.

The wheels will be fine because you won't need anymore than 80psi to properly inflate the G tires for your load. Use the inflation charts, all will be fine.

Some will tell you you have to run the max air on the G tires 110# that is a bunch of Barbra Streisand

Now that is a real Barbra Streisand statement.

IMO the OP is smarter than derating a tire pressure/capacity on a trailer almost 30 percent. IMO his idea was to go with a tire with reserve capacity for a longer lasting more reliable tire on his trailer. Derate the pressure/capacity and the advantage of reserve capacity is lost.

Lets look at some facts using Goodyears tire pressure charts.

The LT235/85-16 G614 is rated at 3750 lbs at 110 psi. Now derate it to 80 psi and the tires capacity is only 3000 lbs. Not the best idea as we all know how heat affects a tires long term reliability.

Actually I believe they are about the same after you get the right aspect ratio on the tires.

Not really sure Titleman, I just wanted a 3750 rated wheel to match the tires. I had been running the 614s on my 6k axles on 3400 rated wheels, but only at 90-100 pounds to get by with until the new axles were put in. If you are in Florida, there is a Tredit Tire in Plant City, which is where my wheels came from. My local one was out of them due to end of year inventory. As, stated above, if you go with 17.5 wheels, the tires ratio changes and will be the same height. The only problem I saw with 17.5s is not a lot of people carry them and if you need one on the road they are difficult to come by at times. As they get a little more popular, I may switch myself. Lots of people love them.

I have 4 16" wheels that I just took off my Mobile Suite in a shed out back. Three of them have 614's on them. I am just south of OKC. I will give you a great deal. PM me.

Tredit Tire and Wheel offers 9 choices of wheels such as the one pictured, all rated 3,750 lbs at 110 psi.

Trailer Tire and Wheel also lists 8 bolt wheels rated for 110 psi indicated by an "HD" in the title.

Thanks for the info on the axles. Good quick way to identify the axles on the unit. My lug nuts are stamped with the size of lugs. Looking at the manufacturers sticker on unit also will ID axles.

Personally I would contact Northwood Mfg directly and ask them if there was any way they could/would install 17.5 inch tires/wheels under that fiver. Going to GY G614's is IMHO going to bite you in the end. You will then be stuck with a single tire and tire source. Not a smart move in my way of thinking.
There is another choice for G tires. I have these with over 20K and thay are an excellent tire. Came new from Heartland as stock.Click here
