    Landstar is digging up old junk trailers. Picked up a preloaded one with 5 tires 8 years old. Replaced 3.

    I won't mention the wtf cracked frame. Trailer had obviously been sitting for a long, long time.

    I saw a 3 year old Landstar trailer for sale on FB marketplace this week. Not sure why or how. No logos removed. I should have took a screenshot. Not sure what that was about.

    They can stop making them forever, I never had any luck with Goodyear anyway.

    I never had any good usage with Michelin steers on a Cascadia.

    I just went through the same ordeal with my drives and trailer tires. Everybody carries them in my area. The problem was that choices were extremely limited due to no stock. Shortage everywhere for tall 24s. I ended up with Marathons on my drives and Roadmaster RM234s on the trailer.
