My truck pulls better when I go 80, the faster I go the better it pulls. My trailer tires wear on the inside as well, more so on the left tire. I cant go a full season without replacing them. I've been running Carlisle.2011 Moomba LSV

Same problem. Single axle trailer. Had it two seasons, replaced 3 tires so far. I can't remember what the originals where, but I think they were not Goodyear or Carlisle. I have one tire that wears on the inside edge much more than the other. Had to replace it last labor day and Walmart was the only thing open so I got a Goodyear Marathon. Replaced that this year already. Now I've got Carlisle on there, I think E rated. They seem to be working better.2011 Mobius LSV

So what's the common ingredient here - are all these trailers torsion axles?
I just replaced my original tires... Yes, from 2001. They were Goodyear Marathons and still had decent tread, just showing their age. Had a blowout 2 yrs ago due to a screw in the tire. Threw on a used replacement that broke a belt earlier this year. Finally just did all 4 new via Les Schwab (TowMaxx) since I was on a time crunch.
Old tires did not have any uneven wear at all though.
65-75mph pretty much every trip.
2-3k miles per year.
Rarely ever have the heat to deal with though.Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

When I'm ready I'm gonna call Tirerack.com and see what they have. I don't want to be limited to what they have in stock around here.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!
