use the best tire that I can buy on my trailer .. in my case commercial extra heavy duty Michelin XPS are mounted on truck and trailer , and use a heat gun when I stop to stretch my legs.. looking for hot axles bearings and tires temps
I air them to max air loads [80 PSI in my case] , sure I could go a bit lower for ride but i don't usually run across scales for weight check and my wife thinks we need to take everything including the kitchen sink on trips so know I'm loaded heavy. I run those tires on all my trailers 34' tow behind, a 36' fifth wheel, a G/N , and a utility
lots of good info out there to read up on towing / tires / weight ratings etc.
thanks for the link
