You bet, never had any flats in over 37 yrs of using GY on all kinds of trailers, trucks or cars.

I got a good 4,500 miles out of my Akurets. Of the five, I lost one to a nail and another came off when I found a tennis ball sized bubble on it. I switched to Maxxis. I haven't towed nearly as far with them yet.

If not on your list then bring your automotive creeper and a good flashlight. Inspect the entire bottom for any unsealed water entry point. Look closely in the tire area where the slide rails pass thru the frame. Without fenders tires power wash this area with rain water. The delivery driver could have towed in heavy rain. Tapping the under-cover should sound hollow and lifting should be easy.
