Not always the best choice!

Blanket statement, where do you draw the line? Is there a too light of scenario for a "G" tire???

Regardless of what tire you decide to go with, make sure they are balanced and you might consider having steel valve stems installed.
Good luck.

The op is asking about 15" tire sizes for his smaller size trailer. Assuming his OEM tires are ST225/75-15 D at 2540 lb per tire he sure don't need a G tire a 16" G tire at 4080-4400 lbs capacity.

The new Endurance would be a good pick even though they have only been out just under 2 years now. MILes and years of trouble free service will tell the long term story.
Another excellent ST class tire used mostly in the commercial hauling world is a Provider ST tire. They're one of the first new gen L and M speed rated ST tires and have been around since the '10 era.

What? No one makes a rim or LRG 15" setup.

I never looked for one, but I've never noticed a 15" G rated tire.
I like the new Carlisle HD tire. I have them on the 5th, boat trailer, and utility trailer. No issues.
If the GY Endurance had been out longer I may have gotten them.

I have a 2015 sprinter, 15 inch rims. The tires on there are Load Rating D. I'd like to go with an E rating. Goodyear Endurance tires were recommended and I'm not sure if there is anything out there that might be better as far as durability and wearability.
+1 for Endurance unless you want to go up in wheel size to get LT tires.

Lot of information about trailer tires here, but isn't a "sprinter" a motor vehicle? Need more information.

Like I said earlier the GY ENDURANCE tire has been our for over 2 years now.

New Endurance features Durawall Technology

AKRON, Ohio, January 30, 2017 – For years, hobbyists who tow boats, jet skis and snowmobiles to recreational destinations have asked for an American-manufactured trailer tire to help carry their cargo with confidence. Millions of workers who haul equipment from job to job have echoed that desire.

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has answered that call with the new Endurance trailer tire, which was unveiled this week during Goodyear’s 2017 Customer Conference in Orlando, Fla.

“Goodyear is proud and excited to introduce the Endurance, the only radial special trailer tire built in the United States,” said Ryan Patterson, president of Goodyear’s North American consumer tire business.

A tire capable of transporting the heaviest and most crucial cargo, The Goodyear Endurance features Goodyear Durawall Technology, which helps resist sidewall cuts and punctures.

Available in Load Ranges D and E to accommodate larger trailer load capacities, the entire Endurance trailer line carries the N speed rating allowing consumers to travel at highway speeds. The Endurance also contains a wide range of features, including:

G rated not needed for Ops RV.. stepping up to an E rated non TK tire and keeping cold pressure at sidewall listed pressure and towing at 65 or less will work just fine..

No G rated tire for 15 “ wheels that I am aware of...

But a G rated Sailun tire on 16” rim is top notch and yes it’s made in China and outperforms anything else 8n the road.
