Having pulled single axle...tandem axle...triaxle....tandem dual axle trailers for a living one thing I found from running different load ranges/sizes and tread patterns is braking issues. This will show up under hard braking events and especially on wet pavement....and flat spots across the tires tread caused from one brake on the end of a axle locking up first.
A trailer axle need the same size/load range/tread patterns on both ends for best results.

Normal speeds and normal braking should be no problem till you can mount proper tires on the trailer.

Maybe that is 9300 on the axles to talk about tire weight ratings.

I believe you are correct thinking it is combined axle weight. This shows about 2256 hitch weight.

That is a DRY pin weight based on a DRY trailer weight of 12,823#
Minus the DRY Pin equals 10,567# on axle
DRY weight is more then what OP has posted as 'weight'

If would help if OP would post actual Model Number

Regardless......45# tires mixed with 80# tires


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Since this RV is for emergency use, a tire failure could be more than a inconveinient delay on a vacation.

So get those tires replaced pronto.

My Warrior has 9500lbs on the axles and 2500lbs pin weight, empty trailer.
So I can see those numbers.
I have put my trailer on the CAT scale numerous times.

Don't worry about placard, go with a good LT tire, not ST junk.
As stated already, don't mix/match tires.

Long time, no see, Linc. Glad to see you still kicking around.

How is your Warrior holding up?

Have you been out to the dunes yet this season? I heard they are seeing record crowds already.
