Hey Guys I Need Some Answers. I Noticed This Week That One Of My Trailer Tires Is Showing Cord. This Trailer Is Only A Year Old. The Tire Psi Is Fine. The Other Tire Is Fine. Any Idea What May Have Caused This? Do I Have A Problem With The Trailer?

Maybe that tire is dragging due to tight bearing or tight brakes if you have brakes. Jack it up and see if it rolls easy and if the bearing nut is tight maybe it is too loose. So could be dragging or loose and wobbling.

you may have bent the spindle and the tire is running out of line with the trailer. if it is a double axel trailer get a string and stretch it across the the two tires on one side and see if it is out of line

possible overloading of trailer causing tire to rub on a fender.

thanks for the info. i thought maybe the fender was causing the problem but i dont see any cut marks on the tire just the cord. i thought maybe something out of alignment.
