I don't think that the tires will make much difference. IMO you need to focus on tongue weight (which should be in 10-15% weight range of the trailer) and the hitch. I am towing with ProPride which...

I do not think that they have it on a shelf. More efficient IMO is just to do it when the car is in. Regardless, how much would it be to ship it? 50-100% of the price you would pay in a local shop?
