I can understand this with a six wheel trailer, that will really load thing up but given that all Mr Bear said is right, it doesnít make sense
Incidentally it wasnít the relative positions of the wheels that produced your problem they werenít both at the front or diagonally opposite each other Des

Failure occurs because of poor design, materials, construction or abuse you choose Iíve suggested the lot. Des
If one trailing arm was bent both wheels would be affected, on a single axle trailer the axle would crab to split the forces through each tyre equally scrubbing both tyres. the one sided stress you mean would only happen on a multi axle trailer or vehicle where the force is acting against other axles/tyres that are straight such as the six wheeler mentioned.

Only in a straight line as soon as you start to corner or you are driving on a heavily cambered road the loads can be enormous The proof is in the failure. Des

Measured the trailing arm toe-in as best I could, seems to be straight as far as I can tell without proper kit.

Rupert, there'll be nothing wrong. It's just a crap wheel which has fatigued. Keep an eye on the area around the stud holes on the hub flange.

Going a little off topic but.....I noticed my 10" tyres say that they are only rated to 325kg each, that means that they're not up to the job of supporting the weight of my 750kg snipe trailer package. I had a look around at other 10" tyres and the best rated one I could find was only 350kg each.

Is this a common load rating and if so will I need to upgrade to a 13" set of tyre's?

I have 500kg (each tyre) tyres on my 10" wheels and a 440kg rated tyre on the spare so they can be found
try googling Autow in Perth who sell them.
