Trailer Tyres

Tires are an essential part of any road trip. No matter if you’re towing a camper, fifth wheel, boat, or utility trailer, having the right tires is imperative to ensuring that your equipment is safe and the ride is comfortable.

Though it’s a cliche, your trailer’s tyres are the only point of contact with the road. It is important to take factors such as tyre size, trade pattern, and road conditions into consideration when selecting trailer tires. Also, you should avoid using truck or passenger vehicle tyres on your trailers since they aren’t designed to handle sharp turns or slippery roads. Trailer tyres are engineered mainly to handle debris along the way to make towing simple and fuel-efficient – so there is lesser traction demand. Trailer tyres should put up with sway caused by the movement of the tow vehicle. The trailer, however, could slide sideways if your tow vehicle and trailer are not moving in sync, may even drag your vehicle in the worst-case scenario.

With the right trailer tyres from Oceanic Direct, you can avoid issues like trailer sway or any type of road hazard. Oceanic Direct is a one-stop destination for the best tyres in Australia, with plenty of brands, like Bridgestone, Maxxis, and Michelin to choo

It is for the sole purpose of haulage of goods or mobile homes, trailers have become a part of urban life and a necessity. To ensure the overall safety of your trailer and those behind the wheels of towing vehicles, Oceanic Directs makes finding the right set of tyres for your trailers easy and time-saving.

Trailer Tyres for Different Terrains

Trailers are not meant for extreme horizontal inclination and hilly trails with excessive debris. As you can see, trailer tyres are indicated for limited road conditions, thus the following types of tyres will be suitable.

Mud-terrain tyres: Mud-terrain trailer tyres are designed for muddy roads to cover the outskirts and hillsides across Australia with ease and comfort. These tyres have a thicker tread block with 10 mm rubber thickness, making them puncture resistant. Mud-terrain tyres are less susceptible to flats so that they can accompany your trailer for three to four years without a problem.

All-terrain tyres: If you tow your trailer across varying road conditions like dry, muddy, and earthen with rock litters, all-terrain tyres make for a worthwhile investment. All-terrain tyres have thicker tread like mud-terrain tyres and have a wide trade gap to support low traction demand. The sidewalls are also thicker to avoid burnouts even at full capacity in different road conditions.

Patterns of Trailer Tyres

Longitudinal tread pattern: In longitudinal tread patterns, the groove runs the entire length of the tyre, and stripes are arranged at a right angle to the groove length. Their tread blocks are thicker and symmetrical. Tires such as these are not universal.
