Default New shoes for the cat trailer

I got tired of changing tires on the trailer every time I took it off pavement. The original ones came with rock magnets. They would attract rocks and suck them right into the tread. I had our tire guy order up a set of beefier wheels and tires.

I couldn't agree more, the Trailer rated tire is about the lowest form of shoe a trailer can get.

a local tire retailer gave the insight about the quality of a trailer tire when i asked if he balanced them. His answer is most trailer tires can't be balanced properly.

I also learned something new about the cat a few weeks ago. The manual states that it weighs 6,200 lbs. I believed it...

I drove it across a scale. 7,960. Full tank of gas and me in it. Someone fibbed about their weight...
