I ran bias, radials, truck, car, every kind of 'Common' tire I could get my hands on, and they all moved around too much,
Plus around here, they 'Dry Rot' like crazy,
And one time dragging them over a parking curb or rock trying to get in or out of some place killed the sidewalls...

Went with a regular trailer tire.
Ran about $65 each
(mounted, balanced, installed with new valves,
AND for $5 more a tire, with road hazard warranty!)
from 'Big O' tire chain, and haven't looked back since.

Killed two in the last 6 years or so, sidewall damage, and they gave me FREE replacements without argument.

I asked about dry rotting/cracking,
Free replacements if they dry rot within 5 years,
So I think I'm due for a couple more 'Road Hazard' problems in the next few months.

And it says 'Radial' on the side, but the sidewalls are 5 plies instead of the usual passenger vehicle 2 ply tires, so I don't get the trailer moving around, jumping up and down or doing any other stupid things even when I have it loaded top heavy!
