Radial vs cross-ply tyres for trailer

Recommended Posts

hello all, the tyres on my twin axle trailer are going to need replacing fairly soon. At the moment I have crossply tyres but have seen radial tyres with m+s (mud&snow I think) rating available, though they're a bit dearer. Was wondering if anyone has any experience of what the pros/cons of either type of tyre are? I use the trailer mostly for deliveries (logs etc.) but also use it in the woods to extract material. Thanks, Rob S

Given the same ply rating I think radials beat crossplies for most things, like economy and grip

 

There is one advantage of crossplies and that is they withstand sidewall damage better.
