I have a tandem axel trailer with F65 14 tires on it, those tires are not avalable anywhere on the planet excet tow master, My boat motor and trailer weighs 3500 pounds I was thinking about switching to a 13 inch rim for unlimited tires, cheaper tires, and I blieve the load rating will work fine. Can someopne verify the load capacity of switching to 4 - 13 inch tires on the trailer VS 4 - 14 inch tires. and what would be the over equilivant size to not not change overall rim / tire height.

Don't have a half an inch ?
Can't move fenders up this much ?

Good reference for all tire sizes, loads, costs....

Those F64-14 tires can be tricky. They are basically a 14 tire that has the overall height of a 13 tire. Your load rating on those F65-14s should be 1760#s per tire. The standard 175/80D13 tire is only going to have a load rating of 1360#s. If you have a F65-14 right now I would be surprised if a standard 205/75D14 or 205/75D15 would fit. They normally only use that tire when fender clearance is an issue.

Hope that helps.
