Had radial tires that I got from 4wheelonline. I noticed that the sidewalls are more flexible and my trailer seems to corner and pull more smoothly.

Hard time finding the Sport Trail, so i got the Radial Trail HD, better tire anyway. I keep my trailer tires at 50 lb.psi all the time.

sure hope you had a good trip. when I was running the 13" I was way overloaded for 13's. I bought a 19' center console on the trailer but switched boats to a 21' open bow cruiser with the 350 Mercruiser. and I was running 75 mph on my trips to fl. after I switched to the 14's I made the trips several times without a flat at constant speeds of 75 with an occasional 80 to 85 mph. on my second set, I did have a flat going up to Erie this yr. but I think it was just a bad tire. with about 50 miles to go my son following me had me stop to check a tire that he said was bouncing pretty bad. the balancing weight had come off. so I figured it was just out of balance and went on., but 5 miles from our exit I was looking in my side mirror when rubber flew everywhere. but I checked the other tires and they were all cool and collected. put the spare on and finished our trip. i did just buy a set of cheap bias tires for my little boat trailer because money was low. but when I replace them it'll be with radials I hope. they run cooler pull smother and are just a better towing tire. why do you think all cars switched to radial tires?
