I need to replace my boat trailer tires, 19' bay boat, what is a decent brand to use ? People seem to bash Carlisle tires, but I have gotten decent service out of them. How about loadstar ?

After a number of problems with trailer tires, Maxxis tires worked for me. I bought them on the web and had Walmart mount and balance them.

caught a blowout on some carlise this past monday...first time taking my buddy's boat out from the winter, we head to his camp at 10 pm, catch a blow out on a narrow 2 way road. fucked up the axle...9 miles from the launch, 1 blown out tire, some rope, and the spare tire. and this is what you have....

cause of pushed back axle----when the tire blew, and the pressure from pulling it off the semi busy road...driver side leaf spring went kaput too.

ps...they spare is not carlisle

We have had loadstar trailer wheels since we bought our boat in 2004 and have had no problems with them. The spare we ordered was also a loadstar.
Good Luck!

Just bought 2 Tow Master Radials. They got good reviews in the web and they were only a few $ more than bias ply.

My trailer came with loadstar tires and they worked just fine for me. You can get them here:
