      They have the D rated rims/tires that I run on my Karavan trailer, you can also get the c rated variety

      What size are you looking for?

                You found a D rated tire in that size at lowes? I'd double check the load rating on that tire you just bought.

                The C rated will be around 1,360-lb

                D rated will be around 1,610lbs

                    B is definitly wrong.

                    1100x2 = 2200

                    Your boat weighs:

                    1847 dry

                    170lbs of fuel

                    300-400lbs of trailer?

                    Plus anything else you carry in the boat

                    = 2300lbs minimum

                    C Rated gets you 2720lbs of capacity - maybe that is factory for a 175

                    Mine is a 195 classic that weighs 2091 dry and came with D rated tires from the factory

                        Nope

                        st175/80D13c

                        ST = trailer tire

                        175 = 175mm section width

                        80 = 80% sidewall aspect ratio

                        D = Bias Ply

                        13 = rim diameter

                        C = load rating

                            Hi Nutsy,

                            This is a good idear to have a spare!!!

                            Can i ask if you are going to mount the spare in the trailer? If so how do you plan to do this.

                            Has anyone else done this and how have they mounted there spares?

                              Spare tire bracket from NorthernTool or Fleetfarm costs about $25 - mounts to the side rails on the trailer frame.
