    Your trailers vin/ info tag should have the weight rating stamped on it. Example gvwr 12000. That's what mines rated for. So if you have a dual axle trailer, four tires, then each tire should be rated at 3000lbs at Max inflation. The tire ratings are on the tire.

    On the subject of trailer tires, I suggest a heavy tire like a load range E or higher. That'd be a 10 ply and take about 80 psi.

    I believe ratings go like this:

    A----2 ply
    B----4 ply
    C----6 ply
    D----8 ply
    E----10 ply

    Even if you're not hauling super-heavy loads, I'd use as heavy duty as I could get. Myself, id rather have a set of used 10 plys than new light tires. I know people who haul a lot that use 16 plys.
