After six years the tires on my 14k gooseneck trailer finally gave up. They were Chinese bias belt ST tires and they never failed me but I had to air them up once a month as they always had a slow leak. Took them off, sealed the beads, still had that slow leak. All 5 of them always did this.
I found a set of Bridgestone radial LT E rated tires that are like new (came off a 3/4 ton GMC truck) and I am thinking about using them. I have been reading on several of the tire sites and they say that the ST tires are better as they have bigger cords and other characteristics that make them better for trailer use. Most of the ST tires I see are Chinese which I do not want. So if I go the ST tire route I would want a US made set.
I load my trailer down pretty good sometimes and I don't want tire problems on the road.
