If within your weight limitations, go to LT (light truck) tires. Michelin RIBS are a good example. Avoid any tire made in China, which makes most all ST type tires. I just suffered a blowout on my 5er three weeks ago. My China Bombs had less than 5k miles on them, I'm lightly loaded, checked pressure that morning and have a TPMS installed. The only thing it did was confirm that the explosion I heard was my front axle driver side tire.

Here is a link to a story that doesn't sound to good for them...

Seems to me I remember that Kenda trailer tires developed a rep for serious problems some time ago--maybe better now? I personally would look at Maxxis...
