I recently received a 2016 Retro 177SE, the spare tire is still a white wall G78-14; however, the trailer tires have been replaced by blackwall trailer tires.

When asking the previous owner about the tires, was informed the whitewall (Corker) tires were not trailer rated and were a safety concern.

1) are the Corker tires coming with the trailer, trailer rated?

2) leads on any good white wall trailer tires?

Coker does not make trailer tires. Many people have had issues with the Cokers Tires, apparently Riverside RV no longer uses Coker Tires on their trailers. There are currently no White Wall Trailer tires on the market that anyone knows of.  If the previous owner put Radial Black tires on your trailer that is a good thing!

Thanks for the information.  Too bad there are no white walls available, the black walls detract from the over all look.  but better safe and on the road, than look good on the side of the road.

We have had our 2016 177 SE almost a year now and were unaware our tires were unsafe until we had a blow out.  The tire exploded in a parking lot after a 3 hour drive.  it blew the entire wheel well out and including the interior wall.  My trailer was full of wood splinters and debris.  I’m just grateful it happened after we got of the busy freeway! We could’ve died.  I’m in love with my trailer but very angry that a brand new trailer could be sold to first time RVers with unsafe tires that don’t meet the required specs of the trailer.

Glad to hear you are safe.  Reading this, I am grateful that the tires have been replaced.  Still looking for trailer rated white walls.

I sent an email to see their availability.  If they do have trailer rated tires, good for me they are the next town over.

Contact the shop, and confirmed that they do have steel belted radial trailer rated tires that are white walls.

the link for those tires is http://www.widewhitetires.com/…..Tires.html

the price per tire is listed plus shipping; which for me with a 177SE plus spare would be $75 shipping.  Even though their shop is the next town over, they ship to you and there is a couple of weeks lead time.  Soon as my tires get a little more wear I will be changing over.

I just reached out to the White wall tire company.  My biggest concern each time I take the trailer out is those tires.  I plan on replacing them asap.

Good luck. I’m glad ours came with trailer rated tires when we bought it. I would worry every time I took it out, too
