Do you mean the tire surface moves up and down 1/8"? I don't know about trailer axles but comparing the 0.125" run out to a car with 0.040" or less seems like a lot to me - though I've never measured radial run out on a trailer before. Don't know if new tires will fix that as the run out might well be in the hubs or rims.

If the tires aren't worn out or dry rotted I'd try towing and evaluating before springing for new tires.
