Update:

It was a blown belt - tough to tell until I pulled it off. It’s a 2018 trailer. Came with kinetica brand tires. Guy said they’re really car tires as opposed trailer tires. Said it was a defect. My dealer said they’d reimburse-props to Dixie Marine. Was only $100 bucks to replace with a 65k goodyear.

No weights on these wheels. Not sure how you balance them.

Its called road force balance. Beads inside the tire, I believe.

Here is a video on the use of Road Force Balancing>

Notice that first the tire and wheel and put together in the best place.

Then, weights are added to the inside of the wheel for the final balance:

Here is the site for the "counteract" balancing beads that are used inside the tire to balance the tire.

Default Tire

Most cause for trailer's vibration is tire. Maybe try checking if it is balanced.

I had the same issue in the past and found out that the tires needed to be balanced. The stick on weights on the inside of the rims had fallen off.
