It sounds like the previous owner had a blowout or two and put the cheapest things on he could before he got rid of the trailer. I just got done putting 4 new Maxxis tires on my rig. I had a triple blowout on my last trip. Held on to the originals a bit too long. Maxxis seems to have the best write-ups, though they are not without their horror stories as well. Just not as much as the rest of the tires. A lot of people like the Goodyear Duro's or the Kumho (857??). I'm sure you'll get more responses soon. I like the Maxxis tires so far.
