Wanted - Trailer Tyre

Had a blow out today on the way home..will check a few shops tomorrow for a replacement.

Anyone else had to chase down 165R 13C or similar - Load Range "D" (94/92N 8PR) combined weight at 1.2T over dual axle.

Good second hand would be the more than enough for the travel distance it does...

Any help appreciated.

 Got some 165 8plys from bibra tyre power recently , they were feredal , ecovans if I remember ( it was a few beers ago ) 

 cant remember excactly but around $100 or just above each fitted and balanced i think.

 Taking balancing , the old tyres had no wieghts on ali rims , which I thought strange , but according to tyre guy  , no most trailer rims and tyres are not

 balanced , so it took me a bit to convince him I wanted it done. ( couldnt hurt could it? I do tow it at 100kph sometimes) .

Travel distance hasn't much to do with it.

 Buy someones spare that has been lying around for 10 years and it will fail. Tyres are really only good for 5 years unless you don't get into top gear getting to the ramp. They perish, deteriorate, blow. A 165/13 LT costs stuff all new, any tyre shop will have them. The fact you had a blowout doesn't make you think you need to replace both? In my experience, once one fails for no apparent reason, the other is right behind it.
