Tire question


Recommended Posts

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


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).
