    I use tire rack all the time. Get them shipped right to the house. I call around and ask for prices for mounting/balancing. Sometimes if you pull your wheels off and bring them in you can get them done for $10-12 a tire.

    Tires have a shelf life. Trailer tires are not high volume movers so check the build date.

    I hear your concern but you would be surprised how its not as important to have D or E on your trailer as you might think.

    This is the ratings.

    ST-Metric Trailer Service Tires
    Load Range Ply Rating Markings Max Load Pressure
    B........................4........35 psi (240 kPa)
    C........................6........50 psi (350 kPa)
    D........................8........65 psi (450 kPa)
    E........................10......80 psi (550 kPa)

    While E is the best you have to consider these tires are not Towing, they are being towed, so the forces on them are less then on your Truck.

    Absolutely on your truck you should run D or E because not only are those tires supporting your truck when you go around corners they are getting side ways force applied from your trailer pushing and pulling on the rear of the vehicle.

    Yes absolutely you can tow and have no issues with Lower rated then D tires < my new F150 has ST > not even tow rated tires but you will feel more sway from them and they wont feel as stable.

    The larger D and E ratings are more commonly found on larger, 5th wheel trailers, large campers, and other trailers typically over 10K weight limits.

    The Mojo is the heaviest in the Moomba line and even then its 4K empty, with 1200lb trailer so 5200 total then add fuel, gear, and your tipping 6K. Well with in the C weight limit of the trailer tires.

    ...and if you have tandem axles, the load is 1/4 that per tire.

    Default trailer tires

    Good info Mike thanks. I was wondering why I kept seeing people say you need a D/E class tire when I had C and they've working fine for me over the past 3.5 years. And I do have a tandem trailer
