Default trailer tires at Walmart

Although I'm not a regular customer at Walmart they saved the day for me yesterday. I was pulling the boat to Traverse City, Mi and was on I-75 when a front tire let go on my tri-axle trailer. Was luck to be able to continue slowly and rolled into the Gaylord, Mi Walmart.
Suprisingly they had the exact tires, same brand (Carlisle) I needed, pulled the truck with trailer and boat into a stall and mounted a new tire plus found another on the same side was begining to de-laminate, probably from the load on that side.
Was out of there in less than one hour.

I stopped at a walmart to have them fix a flat on my toyhauler and they said all they would to is sell me a plug and after I put the plug in they could only put air in it for me. They were telling me there was too much liability in trailer tires. I found a tire shop down the road that fixed me up.
