COG and easier loading for little cars and crap that I have to haul around town.

Yea, radials on both axles is what I am going to do. I thought about the cooler bearings and longer lasting tires...but for the few times a year I haul the Jeep, is it really that big of a deal if you keep the bearings serviced?

I know the law says so, but I see a ton of trailers with only 1 brake...and I see even more with brakes but the tow rig doesn't have a controller.:stan3:

I wanted to convert to surge brakes, but too much work and too much cost.
