DocBrown ... you say it should be 50 PSI. The tire, and the info on the side of the trailer shows that it should be 65 PSi ???
I'm pretty sure "D" rated tires are supposed to be 65psi.

Best to go with what it says on the tire and on the trailer.

On the tire, the tire manufacturer has the maximum inflation pressure. The sticker on the trailer has tire size and other information. The inflation pressure on the sticker is the inflation pressure for the tire that the trailer manufacturer installed on the trailer. If you bought your trailer used, hopefully the tires are the same, or better, than the original tires.

I will post when I have a few more km's ... doing about 2,000 end of July. Will monitor.

Thanks ...
if the tires were underinflated that much, and wore down like that, I would not plan on doing another 2000km on them, there might be internal damage from being so underinflated, and what is left of the thread on those is not very safe!

D rated tires on an X17Z? I didn't think you could even get this size in anything other than an "R". I have the same size tires on my X20E, they are "R"s and max at 50 psi. The manual simply says to keep them inflated to the max the sidewall specifies. If yours say "Max 65 PSI" on the sidewall, then that's what you should fill them to.

I agree with what seems to be the consensus that it looks like too many miles (kms) at low pressure. The bottom pic looks like there might also be a balance issue.

Concerning the PSI question above ... DocBrown ... is there something that I don't know and it should only be 50 PSI ?

Oops ... didn't do a refresh. I see your replies now.

Thanks all for accommodating an embarrassing issue.

Nothing to be embarrassed about. Live and learn. As they say, the only stupid question is the one that isn't asked. You took the time to ask and learned something new!

Thanks ...

I've been reading about tires and it sounds like radials might be better (assuming I use the proper PSI ... hehehehe) for better traction/tread-ware/stability/last longer. So, I assume I'd go from;

ST185/80D13, to
ST185/80R13
