Another vote for G rated tires. Less chance of a blowout.


Why would the OP want G tires on a rig that's placarded for =D= tires? [emoticon]

Sometimes RV trailer manufacturer’s (especially Keystone) build tandem axle trailers with very little spacing between the axles. Often so close, larger diameter tires cannot safely be used as replacements.

In this case there is a new 15” steel cased ST tire on the market. It’s the ST225/75R15 LRF. It has a load capacity of 3195# at 95 PSI. Its physical dimensions are the same as the OPs OE tires.

Maybe because people don't read before replying. Happens in every tire thread.

I wonder if the wheel manufacturers have caught up with that? Because as it is now, approximately zero percent of 15" wheel equipped trailers could handle that. I'm not one who is too worried about putting an E tire on a D wheel, but even I would not put an F tire on a D wheel.

I was just presenting information on the tire. I got that information from an OEM provider who I'm sure has wheels and valve stems up to the task of mounting the tire safely.

Who makes a wheel that is rated for a LRF 15" tire? Oh, yeah those new 8 lug 15" wheels. 2830 seems to be the highest rated 15" trailer wheel. Steel wheels are even less at 2600. Source Tredit, a major trailer tire and wheel supplier. Chris

So what axle is one going to use these Greenball tires and wheels on. Their rating is beyond a six lug 6K axle. Getting a higher rated axle in a 6 lug hub might be difficult. Is Greenball going to build axles for them rated to 6400 pounds with six lug hubs. We then need to look at the brakes that fix inside a 15" rim and are good for that kind of towed weight.

I have long been a fan for an all steel ply trailer tires. Which provide low rolling resistance, and lots of strength in the carcass.

You have however have down talked them over the years. Why the change in heart now?
