I have not had any luck with any trailer tires. I use LT truck tires, even used ones outlast ST trailer tires. They blow out too soon.

ST trailer tire have a thick side wall to allow for greater load ratings.
Problem is most have a J speed rating. (62 mph)
Exceed this speed or hover around it and you will over heat the tire.
This causes per mature wear and sometimes failure.
This may or may not be your problem as you did not give us enough info to make that call.

Some switch over to LT truck tires because of the higher speed rating.
Problem is LT tires have a thinner sidewall so they have reduced load ratings.
Put LT tires on a trailer and then load it to capacity and you are right back in the same over heating boat.

They do make ST trailer tires with a speed rating of L 75 mph and M 81 mph but you have to specifically look for them.
So before we could even give a educated guess as to what the problem might be we would need more info.
If you have good tires and still have problems you may have a alignment issue that is causing your pre mature tire wear.

I believe more and more of the ST tires are being made with the higher speed ratings now. Bought 4 new Carlisle ST175/80R13 for my boat trailer last month, and they are rated for 81mph.

I use 265/16 load range E on my pickup when they get worn down they become trailer tires. Have good service with this setup. Steve

Have used Hercules Tires on trailer. Very good tires. Make sure you get your tires balanced.

Sounds like you do a lot of traveling with your trailer. I know this is pricy, but do you have the room to convert the trailer to 17" tires and rims? We converted dozens is trailers to this setup in the last 5 years I was in the tire business. Boys went from having 1 or 2 flats a week to perhaps 1 a year. The 17 inch are 14 or 16 ply tubless and very heavy. We spun balanced every one of them. Things must have changed in the past 10 years. In the 22 years I was in the tire business, I never saw a speed rating on a trailer tire. I do not remember anyone having a tire separation with the 17" rubber.

I'm sure I could if tires weren't any taller, because there close to deck as of now not sure what they call it but my trailer sits lower than a normal one was little bit more money

Our local tire shop talked us into 14 ply alliance tires. I know made in China. But have 3 trailers with them. Not even a flat yet. Just have 3 yrs. On the first set. Time will tell. Just hauled 16000 net on 4 of them. Just about 6 miles and I stayed under 40 mph. But have hauled 10000 net for 200 mi. At 70 mph. On same 15000 lb. Trailer.

Do you know what the load rating is per tire, I'm do for a set just holding off for moment as long as they'll support 8500lb trailer with 17000lb tractor I'd be willing to give them a shot
