I've seen very few trailer tires with the tread worn out. Usually they fail much before that happens.

OK, Any LT tire failures to report?

Excerpt from Discount tire website,

"Mileage
Trailer tires are not designed to wear out.
The life of a trailer tire is limited by time and duty cycles.
The mileage expectation of a trailer tire is 5,000 to 12,000 miles."

It seems as if a trailer tire can only be engineered to last 5K to 12K....

Well isn't that special? Maybe the intent is not so much to design a good tire for trailers.....

I understand, but trailer tires fail well before that mileage in my opinion, either from age or poor construction. Jim

Could be,,, maybe by design?

I know well that most LT tires will run til the tread wears out, forty thousand or more miles, sometimes twice this.

I agree. ST = engineered or planned obsolescence.
They( tire manufacturers) could make it last, if they wanted it to. Might be expensive, but could be done. $100 today isn't like $100 in 1980 and no where near 1970.
just saying,

Have a good one,

It's time to drop all the superstitions and get down to scientific facts:

Never buy a tire from a manufacturer that has to include the word "good" in their name. It is blatantly obvious that they are trying to cover up feelings of low self esteem due to lack of faith in the quality of their product.
