We developed TrailerLegs to help you maintain your trailers tires. Along the way, we found that you were equally interested in the stability that TrailerLegs provides.
Did you know that 80% of your trailers suspension comes from the tires! The sidewall of a trailer tire is the thinnest part of the tire. Tire manufacturers designed the sidewall as thin as possible to help absorb bumps and potholes. See for yourself, simply step up onto the steps of your trailer and look to see how much the sidewalls flex.
Why do trailer tires fail long before they are worn out?
Since you are outside testing the sidewalls flexibility, take a look at one of your tires, you will notice that the tire isn’t round like when it was made, infact, there is a flat spot on the bottom. As the tire is sitting on the ground, two things are happening. One, uneven dry rotting of the tires glues and natural moistures, which holds all the layers and steel belts together. Two, the steel belts develope a pinch or bend right where the round part of the tire meets the ground, this pinching of the steel belts is non-reversible.
So it is easy to see, that getting your trailer tires off the ground with TrailerLegs, will, not only improve stability, but, will also help in maintaining a safe longer lasting tire.
