What were the OE tires? (Size, type and LR and recommended inflation?) is your tire load capacity at least 110% of GAWR and have you confirmed your actual axle weight is less than GAWR for each axle?
Trailer is single axle, 4500 gvwr.
Actual load on axle when loaded for a two week trip stuff for three people, with full water, was 3900 lbs.
Previous tires were GYE, 225/75/15. Ran them at 55 psi for a load capacity of 2270 each. This worked well, and reduced the number of sheared pop rivets.
New tires are 235/75/15. Load capacity of 2271 at 42 to 44 psi. Run them at 50 psi.
I have confidence in the Michelins.
