What matters more than anything is:

1. QUALITY of the tire. Many trailer tire brands are not good.

2. HOW the tire is used. Overloaded and/or run soft is hard on a tire.

3. HOW the tire is stored. Left in the sun is really hard on a tire, especially a trailer tire that doesn't get used much. On a working truck the tires get rolled on a regular basis, which keeps the material supple.

I really thought I was going to be the guy to disprove that trailer radials needed to be replaced at 6 years or before. I never ran my tires under inflated. They were never over loaded. When not in use I parked the trailer on boards to keep the tires out of the mud.
I made it past the 6 year mark. Made almost to 7 years. When I stop for fuel when pulling a trailer I always feel the tires to make sure they're not hot and visually inspect them for damage. On one fuel stop I noticed the profile of one trailer tire had changed from slightly convex to kind of wedge shaped. The other 3 tires looked fine and none of them were hot. Something like 8 miles later I was at a tire dealer getting a new tire when I noticed a second tire had done the same thing!
