    So I just bought a trailer today and it was an extra $22.00 for the tire but I figured what the heck. because it looked like a heavy duty tire. So we get home back the trailer in the garage every things good. But wait did you hear something like a creak I ask my fiance. She said I think then BAAAAAAM it happened the tire exploded under the weight of the trailer with only two 21" lawn mowers on it! SON OF A &!$@#! it's officail we have some of the worst luck in the world yesterday someone steals our magnets today the tire explodes scaring the crap out of my Fiance.

    I think "Made in China" says all that needs to be said.

    I Ordered somewhat of a bastard trailer about 2 weeks ago. 6-14 landscaper with a curb side gate.. Single Axle and a 5k gvwr. But it's perfect for what I need it for. Very convenient. My uncle is the manufacturer of Premier Trailers.. ever hear of them?

    Dunns where did you buy it ?

    I bought the one for $22 at Northern Tool Co, i think its rated at 1200LBS. Works pretty good for (1) 32" Toro and (1) 21" Mower. Might want to check that out.
