I have been using my new 12 inch load range E tires filled with the CO2 R-404a mix on my little trailer just about daily from late October till now.
No problems.
The hardest working loads were this summer. I hauled about 1,100lb of tile, moarter, concrete and wood home from lowes. Then a trip to Sams club bringing back around 600lb going 75mph on a hot summer day for about 100 miles.
Everything else has been lots of 20 mile trips each way.
Loading up household goods one way, then tips back some times hauling scrap metal or trash up to twice a day.

1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
