I've have traveled about 7000 miles on Westies and there is no sign of any wear, which as we know is more about keeping pressure right and alignment on the trailer itself. I should have TPMS but I do check tires time before setting out, each travel day and monitor occassionally with IR gun a couple times a day. TPMS is in my future before I leave for the west coast.
With the 29 traveling, I am right at 9000# total with the bike and loaded for bear. Like this, TW is slightly over 900#. Also, with mods (the new dry weight) only the Trailer weighted 7640# with 1260# TW. Front axle shows 4100# rear 4000# and if side to side is balanced (?), the front axle tires are carrying 2050# each... far below their rating (D).
