I just swapped out bias ply for radials, all around. 3xs the $ (for new) but the safety and the smooth ride are WELL worth it. The set I picked up were used, about 40-50% life left and cost me the same as 1 new radial.
The bias ply shred right off your trailer when running in any kind of warm temperatures. Thankfully, my rig is a tandem and the tire didn't damage too much of my trailer as it blew apart (just had to replace the fender on that side). Manufacturers sell trailers with these jokes-for-tires to cut costs, but in my opinion, no livestock trailer should be allowed anywhere NEAR them. Bumpy-ass ride, too!
