While I agree that Sailun s637 are the best, they're overkill for OP's fiver.

"Endurance get good reviews but you might not find them readily available"

I have heard this too many times. I have even called my Discount Tire Manager and he said not a problem getting them.

quality will go to a commercial grade all steel ply carcass tire like the XPS Ribs or the R238 over any ST C/D/E tire poly carcass tire.
Apples vs pickles.

Not good tires for a trailer savvy why anyone would use a a S637 Sailun load G/110 psi for that size trailer.
Kinda like recommending the 16 " load E XPS Ribs for replacing a 14" ST load C tire like we see on rv forums.

I have Goodyear LT E rated tires on 2 trailers and have been very happy with the performance, wear, etc on both. Will be replacing the tires on one trailer this year due to age. I will resell them on craigslist since they are a great LT tire and someone with an old truck can get a great tire for low money - recoup some of the cost of new tires.

To the OP - tires can look totally fine but after about 6 years you are taking chances. Best to replace.
