In road racing, it is required to say "wheel" on radio traffic when referring to a tire. Such as... "Car 54 has a flat wheel at turn 5. "

The reason is that "tire" can sound too much like "fire" over the radio, and affect the response.
Everybody knows what is meant.

Most tire sales places will mount and repair tires up to 10 years of age from the sidewall date. Even that is arbitrary.
I will reach my requisite "three score and ten" in just over a year....
Here's hoping that's not enforced.

As to tires, I would recommend the Endurance over the Marathons. Endurance are manufactured in the US. They have a higher load rating so inflate them to Goodyearís inflation chart based on the weight of your trailer. The max sidewall pressure is 65 psi, but 65 psi on a small trailer might result in a bouncy ride. I would guess that whatever you are inflating your current tires to would be a good number, or at least a good starting point.

Hopefully when I am in AZ, I wont be freaked out by potential death storms. I can deal with microbursts and other things that roll you down the street, I just don't want to be up in the air. Someone mentioned lightening was a bigger threat, but I think I could just get in my vehicle to avoid lightening.
