Good question. Kind of like what is the most reliable medication to take. Simple question but difficult to answer.

I did do a post on how you might choose the best trailer tire. That might help you.

Just an FYI: When I went to your post, Webroot labeled it as having been identified as unsafe.

Don't have any idea why the software is providing a false positive.

I've had a couple of blow outs in the rear, on the same side. I finally figured out what was happening; I have valve extensions and the wheel cover was coming off and taking the valve extensions / stem with it. I've since wire-tied the wheel covers on. I've also purchased a TPMS. So far no more issues.

UH OH, I have "Transporter" tires on my TT. I purchased these last March at - - -Sam's Club. I had read reviews on these tires before purchasing and the reviews ran about 50/50 either way on these tires. So far- -they have held up rather well on my TT. I don't do across the country type camping. So far I've gone about 200 miles from home on one trip and was pulling the TT along at 65 mph. Just my story,
