Re: What's your trailer setup?
My little used Canadian Tire, bolt together trailer was free, it came with 8" wheels, which I upgraded to 10" and later 12". Yes, they would blow after sustained 70mph use. It would have been great around a city, but not all day on the highway. I towed it 17 hours straight to Bonneville in 2000 and had to buy more spares in Salt Lake for the trip home.
Your results may vary. They're cheap for a reason, but good enough to run errands to Home Depot.
Just take it easy, and keep inspecting the tires.
I've got a 30' enclosed race trailer which I love, but its not very practical when I'm just moving one bike around. I needed a little utility trailer, I picked this one up for $100 a few years ago. I liked that it was weird, it was built in the early 80's and has a Chevy Citation rear axle, the struts are still there. I had it sandblasted, replaced the sheet metal and deck. Trailer rated 13" tires were cheap. The pull out ramp is handy. It should be good for many more adventures.
