So now I use cheap used tires (inspecting them for no patches or dry rotting, etc.) and they seem to be holding up fine. Front tires on the enclosed trailer are perfect, back ones just didnt wear well at all when I bought it new.
Yeah, they would be like the springs on a truck. I only asked because it seems like I have done better over the years with tire wear on torsion axle trailers vs. leaf spring. I could go basically a whole year on cheap chinese 10 ply trailer tires on my 24' enclosed. Before that I would be eating up two sets a year of 16" 10 ply tires in what ever style I could get cheap (trailer tires, LT tires) on leaf spring open trailers.
