Sankey Top Speed

Just how fast in mph's have you been pulling one?

Or....is there a preferred cruising speed other than the 45 mph recommend.

And what tyres are you using?
I'm looking at using a pair of XZL's.

Thanks

We have a speed limit of 50mph for vehicles towing a trailer.

It's not a problem to let him go at 75mph.

But be sure your wheels are balanced!

I use 7,50R16 or 255/85R16 with 30mm spacers.

I'm sure I've cruised at 75 with the god knows how old original tyres.... Never had any issues towing one. I'm now running 215/85R16 Duratracs on the stock wheels on my narrow track.
