Increasing tire load capacity is a wise move on a trailer. The OEM tires are nearly always barely adequate.

Maxxis is perhaps the most highly regarded trailer tire brand currently available. You may have to hunt for a MAxxis dealer.

Do you know your trailer axle weight, i.e. how much weight the tires actually have to carry? You want a tire whose load rating exceeds that by a comfortable margin.
