Why upgrade to all terrain tyres?

A very requested trailer modifications we receive requests to swap the wheels on our standard single axle and tandem trailers to accommodate all-terrain tyres or Land Cruiser rims. There are many advantages to gain when you choose to take advantage of the upgraded trailer wheels and accessories when you decide to purchase an trailer.

Why should you upgrade to all Terrain Tyres?

If you intend to pull the trailer off the road for an extended duration or simply need to drive on rough roads frequently and require all terrain tyre replacement on your trailer is a great deal of sense. We can fit 15x7LT wheels as well as tyres to all of our trailers that are available for sale, to increase their durability and versatility when faced with harsh conditions.

One of the main reasons you could choose to go for all terrain tyres for your trailer is the fact that they are able to provide excellent grip on all terrain, due to the tread design that is interlocking of an off-road tire with the kind of handling that the majority of street or on-road tyres provide. The soft rubber compound can also be a factor in their flexibility and capacity to handle different road conditions and surfaces. All terrain tyres have reinforced sidewalls that increase the capacity of load that is crucial when towing a large or loaded trailer.

There are a few disadvantages to be aware of when using all-terrain tyres like the tread pattern is known to cause more road noise and they’re susceptible to cupping, specifically when the suspension of your trailer isn’t working in the way it should (although turning your trailer’s tyres regularly will help reduce the possibility of this).

The reason? Land Cruiser rims and tyres are an excellent option

If you are who tows a trailer with an SUV or 4WD upgrading with Land Cruiser rims and tyres could provide you with many advantages. With our upgrade you have the option of fifteen” and 16″ rims, as well as the five or six stud design.

One of the most beneficial advantages of the rims and tyres of your trailer that match the towing vehicle’s tyres is the ability to carry fewer spares. For instance, when you have to replace wheels, you’ll be able to make use of the same spare on either your towing vehicle or your 4WD. This is particularly beneficial when you’re loaded or traveling across long distances.

Another advantage, particularly if you are towing on the ground that is muddy or sandy, is the fact that you’ll be able to track your wheels in a similar way. The wheels of your trailer will basically follow the same tracks of tyres made by your towing vehicle providing a smoother ride, and less resistance and drag. This can also reduce the wear and tear on the tyres of your trailer and improves the fuel efficiency.
