Need good trailer tires

I am in the process of swapping all my tires on my flatbed trailer and have decided not to go with the set of tires I had laying around because they are a lil old.

I am wondering what you guys think is the best trailer tire out ther that I could get at say Walmart or the local goodyear store or something.

I know its a lot to ask but I would like a set with raised white letters!

We use a radial trailer tire that is E rated. We picked them up from discount tire.

They wear very well and last longer than bias ply's

Easily have 8-10 K on our 20 foot bumper pull

any raidial 10 ply will do just fine for you. doesnt matter where or who you get them from. like said before you get what you pay for. i dont think you need the top dollar tire for your trailer but you dont want to go cheep either.

Get the Carliles or Green belts from Discount Tire and buy the certificates with them, if a tire blows out or gets damaged, as long as it has tread on it, it gets replaced. I've never paid full price for a tire in 4 years.
