Tow Max tires weigh in at about 34 pounds each and are about $85 at Tire Rack. Any of the LTs are in the 50 pound range and are 135-200 bucks each. The 65 mph Tow Max tires are 'rated' at 3640 pounds while the LT 235/85 - 16 tires are 'only' rated for 3042 (usually) each.

LT tires are rated for 96mph or more road speed
5200/6000 pound rated axles are within the 'legal' range of any 235/85-16 LT tire
7000 pound axles, the Michelin, Bridgestone or Sailun tires will work.

If you pull your trailer 50 miles to a seasonal CG then tow it home after the season, the Tow Max might last you a few years. If you pull your trailer on lengthy trips, then there is a very good possibility they will fail at the worst possible time. Let your fingers do the looking on the 'net for prime examples of Tow Max in particular or their Chinese brothers failing with expensive consequences.
