Hi: Pat C... Recommending a tire brand is like recommending a restaurant. You had a good meal there but others may not!!!
We put a set of Goodyear Marathon radials on our former Boler and they're still on it. "Our Escape Hatch" has them and they are the originals. YMMV

I replaced all 3 of my Goodyear 175R/13 with Maxxis 8008 in the same size. This was after one of the Marathons delaminated on our last long trip. I believe the Maxxis are the best 13" trailer tires you will find; but, I don't know if they are available in Canada.

I'm beginning to think tire manufacturers have one of the worst quality control processes ever. It doesn't seem to matter the brand, someone.. somewhere has had problems. Posters on CasitaForum seem to favor Kuhmo tires which are manufactured in Korea. I'm running 15" Marathons and haven't had any problems (knock wood). Others avoid Marathons like the plague. Who's to know what's the best?

At any rate, here's a link to Kuhmo's in Canada. I don't know if they're available for your size application: KUMHO Tires Canada.

Let us know what you decide Pat.
