Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

The bob rear tire is only gonna have 30-40 lbs load on it tops, for most riders. Thats less load than the typical front tire, which usually lasts twice as long as the rear. So it should last a long time.
The bob tire has a semi-knobby tread with a not-so-high pressure rating, so maybe a slicker high P rated tire might save a miniscule amount of energy.
Higher tire pressure equals a bouncy and less controllable trailer. Just run even a tire rated for higher pressure at least near the max recommended pressure for the trailer. It isn't quite as critical for a BOB, being a single wheel, but is more critical on a 2 wheeled trailer, where bounciness reduces stability!
