So you'll have a max of 11,440 on the tires and, perhaps 2,000 on the pin meaning your trailer shouldn't weigh more than about 13,500. Any more than that and you'll be over weight.

How old are the tires? There is a DOT date code on there too. As tires are used and age they lose carrying capacity. If you are running right at maximum capacity it can cause issues like blow outs and tread separation.

I'm hoping that "1500" is a typo.
