So, I blew and destroyed one of my tires and rims on my trailer. Got to pick up a new rim. The tires that are on it are some extremely cheap bias ply POS's so not real sad about the loss other than having to pony up for four new tires, Radial this time. Did a price check at the local Les Schwab and they have "tow masters" for $288 out the door including balancing and new valve stems. My question is, does anyone have any experience with these? I like the price, but I don't want to start the constant trailer tire replacement game. If these are crap what are the favored trailer tires of the week. By the way size is 205/75R 15's. TIA.

I just shelled out $600 for 5 225/75 R15 Goodyear Marathons. That price included new stems, mounting and balancing for 4 of them and just the rubber for the 5th. I still need to pick up another wheel for the spare and I'll mount the 5th one up when I get the wheel.

I recently went through a blowout, and had Michelin trailer tires, 225's put on, balanced too - LOVE THEM... NEVR GOING BACK TO LT TIRES AGAIN.
Yes, that big of a difference.
I was in a bind and did not get to shop around, but I was out $371 mounted & balanced for my 4.
