I did a redneck alignment check with a length of string across the sides of two tires. It looked like they were not evenly aligned so I called a shop and found they not only align trailer axles, but are pretty reasonably priced. I have an appointment with them in the morning to align the trailer.

I feel much better about getting it checked out before we get new tires than jsut getting tires alone.

Thanks for all the suggesions!

good stuff,as said before ask if they have a set off 4wd out the back...if anything like guys around here they will have 4 or 5 sets that will do you for ages.

Holy chit that was baaaaad. There was 1 tire that remotely pointed in the right spot. Forward axle had slipped back on one side pointing to the left, AND it had both sides pointed further off to the side. The shop put their laser measurement tool on it, got the axles aligned, then used a hydraulic bender to get the axle straightened out. Took less than an hour.

Guy asked if it swayed much, I said yea a bit at higher speeds. He said that's because the tires are all pointing off different directions and as the trailer rocks, it transfers weight off one side to the other, which not being aligned, make the trailer want to go off in different directions.

So if you ever notice trailers starting to sway, check the alignment lol!

New tires scheduled for the morning. Going with Maxxis M8008 Radial tires, they seem to get the best reviews over the cheaper chinese made tires. Hard to find LT tires in the 205/75 size... so I'll go with the Maxxis.

Thanks everyone. Should be GTG now for the next half dozen years anyway.
