New trailer with used tires
Something for you people to look for when considering purchase of a new trailer.
I recently sold my old trailer because I wanted to upgrade.
Well, I went and found a brand new 6 ton trailer, 20 footer to haul my toys on.
Since it was brand new, I didn't pay much attention to the tires other than that they were inflated properly
and the lug nuts were properly torqued. Then loaded my JEEP up and made a 2800 mile round trip to Arizona and back home.
Before I got home, I noticed that one of the tires was about worn out. WOW!! I got back home and talked to the dealer
and he said to take it in and get it aligned, so that is what I did and then went to talk to him about replacing the tires that were badly worn.
It just so happened that he was out of his office for personal business that day, so I spoke to on of his employees briefly about my problem
and he told me that particular trailer manufacturer has started shipping new trailers with used tires on them!!! I came unglued!! I went back to the dealer
the next day and spoke with him about it, and sure as sheeit, his employee was correct. But, he did order 4 new tires for me, and will swap them out when they get in.
