My double axle travel trailer has a GVWR of 9597 pounds. The tires are ST225/75/15, load range D. They are Constancy LY188 with a max load of 2540 pounds each and speed rating of 75mph. The max pressure is 65psi cold.

I'd like to replace them with the same size Goodyear Endurance trailer tires. They have a max load of 2830 pounds each and max pressure of 80psi.

Would these be a good replacement? Are there any other factors I need to consider? Thanks.

I have GY Endurance tires and they are great with one exception. They suffer badly from rock mining. I've never seen a tire that is this bad but at least my tires rarely, if ever see rain or moisture that could cause internal corrosion and failure.
I discovered this when I removed them for balancing.

Most newer 6 lug 15" trailer wheels today are rated for 80 psi.
Years past they ranged from 50 psi/65-70 psi and 80 psi.
Check your wheels for a max pressure rating. If no psi then go by the load rating which is usually be a 2830 lbs for a load E at 80 psi....or a 2540 psi for a load D at 65 psi.

Depending on actual wheel loads moving from a 15" D to a 15" E can be a good upgrade. That way you can still run the tire at max sidewall pressures for max stability...max long term service....and a cooler running tire.

What do you mean by rock mining? Are you referring to rocks on the trail gouging out chunks of tread?

HECK YEAH.

I have them on my cargo trailer and my TT.

Here's a video I did comparing them to the Dynatrail ST tires I replaced on my cargo trailer.

I'm wondering the same thing. I've never heard of "rock mining" in regards to a tire, or "internal corrosion and failure" from being used in rain / moisture.

Here's another video I did of the ST205 Endurance, when I was going to put them on my small cargo trailer.
I ended up selling that trailer and moved the tires, plus two more to my Nash 17k

The sticker on the side of the camper says GAWR of front and rear are 4400 pounds each. It says the rims are 15x6.0JJ. Does any of this indicate whether or not my rims can handle 80psi?
