Need to replace tires on my trailer. Does anyone make a trailer specific tire in a P235/60R14? If so, any preference on brand?

Light truck is usually the way to go except with 14's.

Check out Maxxis 8008's and the new Goodyear Endurance. The Goodyear comes in 8 ply, has an 87mph speed rating and is made in the US also.

Just went to tire rack and it says that size isn't available in the endurance

You sure that is the size?

A 215/75/14 is a little narrower, but a hair taller.

The original tires from extreme was Roadmaster Rampage GT 235/60/14.
Tires were replaced once with 215/75. The spare is still original. Just like the look of the wider tire and lower profile. It has a wide wheel.

Run the 215/75/14. More common if you needed one on a road trip.

That is exactly how mine look. You are getting the whole tread on the ground without stretching the tire.

I'm sure availability was the reason they replaced them with the 215/75's and I will also if I can't find the 235/60's.

Been researching this my self for a week or so trying to find something comparable in a 215 60 14. Also trying to decide if I should just move up to a 15" wheel, quite a few more tire choices in 15".

Depends on your setup. If you need more load carrying then the 15's for sure. I have 14's now. 21 ft boat on a triple axle. 1860 a tire is what the 6 ply's I run are rated to.

Current setup is 25' Daytona on a triple axel competitive trailer. Been running the BFG's on the 14" Boyd's aluminum wheels for years but I want to change it up and it's time for new tires again. Also looking at installing new fenders so I can also raise them up slightly if need be for more clearance.

The 215/75/14 will be a little taller than what you are running. Same width. You might have room to raise your current fenders if they won't fit as is.

try looking at tire size 225/45/r17 extra load tires with a 17 x 9 rim make sure the rim is rated at least 2200 lb the 225/45 are rated at 1819 lbs each and are abt 3/4 in larger in diameter. American makes a rim 7 spoke that fits the bill, the tires i use are by sumitomo ( a Mercedes application w rated ) i put this combo on a triple axel trailer that had 235/60 15 load range d tires just make sure you calc your gross load to check the capacities

I have dealt with this on my old Mach 22 trailer which was 235/60/14s also. Carlisle is the only one who makes that size in a trailer tire now. My current Mach 26 came with brand new 235/60/15s Carlisle's on it and have had multiple blowouts. I always check tire pressure and run them at their Max PSI. Tires were only a year and half old and 2 let go on the same trip. Had to replace both fenders on the trailer and the rubrail on the boat after. So I'm done with Carlisle's. I just put on a set of 205/70/15's that my local tire guy recommended. With the Mach 22 not being that heavy I would just run the 235/60/14 BFGoodrich T/A radials.

I ended up getting 235/60/14's in a Cooper. Looks so much better than the 215/75 with the wider wheel.

Do you have before and after pics? I'm wondering how well this size would work/look on my set up.
