I asked about swapping the tires/wheels with another boat with standard wheels, but was cautioned that while technically possible the trailer also has wider wheel fenders to accomodate the current setup.

IMO low profile tires are better I mean trailer low profile tires usually has a 45 side wall which in my experiences is plenty of tire so don't sweat it

You mean practical, road handling problems? Not the fact that they look stupid, right?

That could get a bit spendy when replacing them, not that buying 4 (or 5) tires to replace tires that look brand new and are 5 years old doesn't already suck.

I just saw this on Discount Tire's website too - seems fitting.

Time
Time and the elements weaken a trailer tire.
In approximately three years, roughly one-third of the tire's strength is gone.
Three to five years is the projected life of a normal trailer tire.
It is suggested that trailer tires be replaced after three to four years of service regardless of tread depth or tire appearance.

Mileage
Trailer tires are not designed to wear out.
The life of a trailer tire is limited by time and duty cycles.
The mileage expectation of a trailer tire is 5,000 to 12,000 miles.
