Bought three old trailer tires on rims to use on an OFFROAD firewood trailer. All kept in a dark building, no dry rot or cracking.

I am aware these tires are beyond their useful life for road use.

It's hard to find decent 15" tires to fit on implement rims these days without paying the long buck for actual implement tires.

The two Carlisles have a nice flat profile on the tread like I've come to expect from a radial.

The third, a 2004 "Mission Load Max Radial" has the profile of a bias tire. Is that normal?

Am I looking at a slipped belt on this one? It's perfectly round, and I'd expect it to be egg-shaped if a belt slipped.


Putting 10-ply tires on half ton trucks since aught-four.

Tell me something I don't know, like, why this tire's tread is crowned so much.

Tires tread width too wide for the wheel will ballon the center of the tread.
When I was on the road and one of my truck or trailer tires were more rounded more than the other same tire I used my tire thumper on the treads centers. A tread delam has a completely different sound.

That sounds like a tread separation - what you are calling a slipped belt - and, No!, it could be so old the ENTIRE belt has separated from the rest of the tire.

Do not use that tire!

I think it will be fine if you keep your speed under 76 mph when hauling firewood off road.

Really surprised by the "DO NOT USE" posts... Unless their ground is amazingly flat, they'd probably be going no more than 20mph hauling firewood off road. Make sure there's a spare so you can change a flat, and go for it.
