I've had a look and it's 4ply on there at present. Ian's chap in Plymouth seems to be the way forward.

Thanks all

trailer tyres

My old snipe trailer was fitted with 145x10 wheels and tyres i took them off and replaced them with mini alloy wheels 6x10 and fitted 165x10 tyres this was to help stop the trailer sinking into soft sand when launching and retriving works a treat and Remember to have tubes fitted this stops air leaking on the tyre beading between the tyre wall and wheel rim

8 ply are more commonly associated with 'van' use, but I usually fit them to my boat trailers as they will take more punishment, and its something less to worry about. Its not too difficult to get a bulge in a sidewall just by mounting a kerb a little too fast for example, and using a heavier tyre helps avoid this I find, as .. usually most of my trailers have had their axles on or near their limits for loading.
