Can you put car tires on a trailer? I know my rig doesn't weigh more that 3k pounds which is what most cars weigh. I just figure there is more tread on them and they will last longer?:yes::headshakesmile-fast:yes::headshakesmile-fast:frusty:

DJ,

There may be more tread on car tires, but there is a lot less sidewall. The scrubbing action of trailer tires in a turn will wear out the car tires from the inside out. You'll then be missing a days worth of work getting new tires put on the trailer. I know you won't like sitting at the tire shop waiting on that!
