Trailer Tires

So I need new tires on my enclosed trailer. The front set are fine, but the rear set are really worn out. Is this typical? These tires are only 18 months old. Tire size is 225/75-15. Load range D. I was looking at these...

Any suggestions?

watch how you are making your tight turns. you will wear out the rear tires faster if you make tight 90degree turns all the time.
as far as kind of tire,,,i just usually stick with carlise for just about all our trail tires

Rear tires on trailers do wear faster, Radials are an improvement.

Ditto on the Carlisle.

I go to the Discount Tire place and order them, get the road hazard, installed for about the same prices as those GY tires on the internet.

I have made use of the road hazard a few times already too.

I've used Tow-Master radial trailer tires and were VERY happy with them, in the same size - ST225/75/R15 load range "D"
