For those of you running 18" wheels, what tires (brand/size) are you putting on them?

For those of you running 18" wheels, what tires (brand/size) are you putting on them?

Dave

Old size (2015 and before) 255/45R18

New size (starting in 2016) 255/55R18

Both Malibu and Boatmate went to the bigger size tire this year. Not sure why, but they probably wanted the higher load rating so the bigger boats could continue to ride on dual axles.

Nexen N3000 is what Boatmate supplied for years. They also used Nitto NT555. Both have the same load rating.

I've had both and prefer the Nittos (pictured below).

God I wish I could match my trailer wheels to my tow rig's wheels. Looks so good!

I run the Nexen N3000. 255/45/18 of memory serves. Tows very well... better than the 14's they replaced.

I am running the same tires and rims as NB and have nothing but good to say about the NEXEN tires.
