Just wondering. How OLD were the tires? I have found that about 3 1/2 years is all you can feel safe using trailer tires. No matter what kind. Mileage does not matter.

Ouch. Been there, done that.

If it were me, I'd just go ahead and get G rated tires if your rims can handle it. G614s are the ultimate in my opinion but for about the amount of a name brand set of E rated tires, you can grab a set if Sailuns.

But again, a lot depends on the capacity of your wheel.

There is a guy near me selling four H-rated Westlakes on 17.5" wheels for $1200.
