Hmmm. Well if you had documentation from the auto manufacturer that said those tires were appropriate for your cars, then I guess you'd be off the hook. But I don't think a low count bias ply tire and a trailer tire are the same thing. At least not today. But if you took a modern, mainstream consumer car like a Metro and put modern trailer tires on it, then I stand by my statement about being up poop creek. Don't get me wrong, I like the budget alternative to any solution, but when it gets into stuff like skirting the edge of "legally safe", man I'd rather err on the side of caution.
