Bought New Tires

So the tires on our trailer were a mixture of 6 ply and 8 ply with inflations at 50 to 65 lbs.
Also the date codes were 2009 (spare) and the others were 2017 to 2019 and one brand new one.
The new one I bought in a pinch because I had to replace one.

I know some will say to buy Goodyears but money is tight and bought four China bombs which would be better than what was on it.

The new one I bought in a pinch will be the spare.

Brakes will be next.

I am running Carlisle tires on mine. They are Believe It or Not Us made at least some of the brand sizes are. Would imagine yours would be the standard as mine but not sure. Price is good. I have used Carlyle tires on my utility trailers and on my camper for years I do replace them every 5 years is so far other than running over a couple of nails I am not had any issues whatsoever might want to think about them

TPMS and keep the inflation up to what the placard states.
Even doing these things doesn't guarantee smooth sailing, but it helps.

I wonder how much of the China bomb tire scare has to do with:

1) Most travel trailers have barely adequate axle ratings, which leads to skimpy cargo carrying capacity, which leads to overloaded trailers,

2) Most travel trailers specify barely adequate tire ratings for the GVWR, which means tires must always be kept inflated to maximum pressure to support the load (even when not overloaded), and

3) Most people suck at checking their tire pressure regularly, and they probably haven't paid attention to the tire sticker on the side of the trailer.

Not to justify the bombs but there must be millions out there that are running.
We only hear about a small fraction.

I agree with the above.

You always hear about issues, those without any issues do not have time to post.
You know about date codes; I would not accept a "new tire" that the date code is very old.
