My previous trailer was 3300# max on 13" load range C tires. After subtracting a reasonable tongue weight, the tires were at their absolute max weight capacity. That worried me. Dual axles or larger higher capacity tires would have been nice.

I was able to find (and it wasn't easy) load range D tires which gave an extra 120# or so capacity to each tire.

Moral: Check the weight vs the loading of the tires. That might make the decision easy.
