How could anybody know that in a factual way? Other than anecdotal? Maybe if you worked at a tire CSI type lab, where you could have hundreds of samples to inspect from both types, then try to determine the actual cause of the failure, be it servicing, road hazard, dryrot, etc. etc.
And then, you would have to know additional parameters, weight of TT, speed at time of failure, age of tire, if the WDH was setup correctly, if the owner loaded the trailer correctly or had a serious imbalace.
You would probably bebetter off arguing something slightly easier like, gas vs diesel, ford vs gm, should Pete Rose be in the HOF, etc. etc.
