Toyo might be the first problem. I assume they are E load rated based on the pressure.

But my question to the OP is, how does the trailer sit... level or nose high? With the WD cranked hard, it makes the trailer nose high and light. This is inherently unstable.

A trailer that is nose down with lots of hitch weight will always be much more stable.

It sounds to me like you are adjusting in the wrong direction.

Up until just recently, I have not had issues with the squirrelly driving, and I have run with the same model of Toyo. I will check it out, though.
As soon as I am able, I will be checking the tongue weight. Your thoughts were my thoughts in regards to putting weight forward. I will break out the measuring tape the next time I hitch up. Currently, we had to leave it at a friends. Thanks much
