I just got two new tires for my tandem trailer.
They are the same size and type as the others.
Should they go on the same axle or same side?

Hoping Freighter Jim will share his knowledge among others

If thy say Power King- TOW MAX on them (AKA BLOW MAX), take them straight to the dump. Dan

Ok. On the same axle they go.

It means I have to clean and paint the other two wheels so they match. :-(

Fred, Not knowing your trailer, but I would recommend putting them on the back axle, as the front axles tires get more scuff from turning & also in most trailers the back axle usually carries a bit more weight. Then move them to the front when the front ones wear out!
