Hell ...tires on my old wood hauler trailer that ran from the house to the woods 3 mile down the county road lasted 17 years proving.......nothing.

One problem is some of us go my miles of service and others by years of service.

Some may put 10k+ miles a year on the trailers tires and others maybe 1500-1800 miles a year.

Some may make short trips to their favorite camp grounds vs those who run 300-400 miles a day for several days to get at their spots.

Some may have a lightweight trailer while others may have a heavier weight trailer.

Some folks are good at making a morning psi check and thump the tires at each fuel stop each day while others maybe at the start of a trip.

One thing we do know is what will happen with a 10 year old tire on a trailer then make a couple of 600 mile a day run at interstate speeds. Better have a good spare and a quick way to change a shredded tire.

I put about 500 miles a year on my 5er and it will kill me to replace 4 expensive tires with so much tread when they age out. But I will certainly do it.

I know this is my personal "bias" (sorry for the dad-pun), but there's nothing less exciting to me than a tire thread. They eventually turn ugly and the tire nuts come out to fight.

This thread feels a little weird from the git-go and I don't think we're going to get any wisdom that we haven't already experienced.
