I'm getting quotes for tires for my 26'TT for both 6 and 8 ply. The brand Master Track keeps coming up. Was quoted $325 OTD for 8 ply which seems very reasonable. Any comments or experience with this brand?

Posted in wrong forum.

Wbile I am unfamiliar with this brand of tire, I did notice that it shows a maximum tire pressure of 50 psi. Recommended tire pressure for other tires is generally 65 lb. That would steer me away from it unless I knew a whole lot more about that brand.

New at shopping for RV trailer tires? 1st, determine the minimum acceptable size and load capacity. You'll find that information on the vehicle certification label, tire and loading placard and in the vehicle owner's manual.

The current terminology for the ply number within a tire is "ply rating". The ply reting is linked with the tire "load range" lettering system for LT and ST tires and "load index' numbering system for all other tires.

Vehicle manufacturer selections for original equipment tires for RV trailers are based on the load capability of the certified GAWR for each individual axle displayed on the vehicle certification label. The OE tires set the minimum standard for all replacement tires. Tire industry standards require replacements to povide a load capacity equal to or greater than what the OE tires provided.

Shop speed rating first. Then price. I think you will be looking at Goodyear Endurance or Carlisle Radial Trail HD.

Ply rating is obsolete. I would not touch a load C if a Load D was available in my size.
Either way get tires that cover the full trailer GVWR.

The only ST tires I would recommend is the..

Providers
Goodyear Endurance
Carlisle HD

In that order.
These are the new gen higher speed rated ST class tires.
The Providers have been out since the '10 era and have the time and miles and have a good service record.
Endurance...made in the USA and has been out 2-3 years now and is popular. No issues so far.
Carlisle HD....its also been out around 2-3 years and no bad reports so far.

Master Track ?? From the looks of the tread pattern its another of the many off brand name ST class tires out here.

I have always ran LT tires on my trailers. If you go over to the Montana Forums they recommend the Sailun's
