I would think it could cause a load shift if the tire blows.

There was a company that made something similar. It was more expensive and came with braking ability. Last saw the similar device a year ago or so.

Can't imagine those little tires and bearings lasting very long at highway speed. There has got to be a proper way to handle whatever the problem you have is.

Jim Mueller from our club used something similar on his old combo. Brand was "Tuff-Tow", I believe. It was heavier duty than the one in your link, and mounted differently. Don't think he had any trouble w/it. You can reach him thru our site if you wish.
