Keep in mind when reading about trailer tires - any design - that they are not mileage tires. Think of them as being on a cycle
There are a number of +/- factors for both bias and radial tires. Owners using few miles per year may get better service from bias tires. But, their mileage expectancy can be as low as 5,000 and top out at 12,000. Whereas the radial is 20,000+.
Here is a reference to read. None are completely correct so you should also keep that in mind when reading it. Then come back and ask some more questions.
