Here is what Maxxis has to say about their bias trailer tires. Notice the tread pattern is much different than their radial tires.

M8009 ST Bias

USN - RET - PDRL - Aviation Structural Mechanic (H)

Buy radial tires. Google Online Tires. They are in Calif. Can get almost any brand at terrific prices. Inexpensive delivery. Have them mounted and balanced locally for about $20 per wheel. Replace your spare also.
