I sure wish those Goodyear tires were made like they used to be. I bought a used trailer back around `95 (a Layton 2250), and put new Marathons on it immediately.
Now I know it wasn`t that heavy a trailer (3700 dry), but it got towed a lot. Numerous trips to the Black Hills and ND badlands (maybe 11 times), all through western Canada, Montana, Minnesota. etc.
Never had an issue, never had a flat, never put the spare on.
They were still on the trailer when I delivered it to its new owners last Friday.
