I drive my cars 15k miles a year, my trailer 400.
I expect my car tires to last as long as possible - 50k miles perhaps. So far I've never work out a trailer tire - they 'age out' long before they wear out.
I've also towed unbalanced trailer tires on a motorcycle - never felt anything out of the ordinary.
