Tires

I have a Burley Nomad trailer and I can't find Road tires for it. Will a BoB or other brand fit?

I use Maxxis HookWorm tires on my utility trailer. More puncture protection can be found in Schwalbe Marathon tires.

For 16" trailer wheels Schwalbe city jets cannot be beaten, and for 20" trailer wheels and above you will not better Schwalbe Marathon plus tyre.
Both types are extremely hard wearing, long lasting, puncture free, low rolling resistance semi-slicks that are everything you'll ever need on a bicycle trailer.

Any good bike shop should be able to fix you up with some. I use Kenda Kwest tires. They cost around $20 each.
