Bill...looking at etrailer, it appears to get wheels rated to cover tire rating of 3,750, you would need 8-lug wheels, which I'm sure you can't use. In a 6-lug wheel, the weight rating drops to 3,050.

You know what you want, and yes, you already have the tires, but I'd not put G-rated tires on that trailer. JMO

Agree most wheels are embossed or stamped with the max psi. If you put a 110psi load range G tire on a wheel thats only rated for 80psi, you have to limit your psi to 80.

Bingo. Several different styles from $65-$100 a piece.
Although it seems old 8 lug pickup truck steelies would probably work too. I recently sold a set of 4 of them for like $75.

I keep LT E tires on my equipment trailers with 5.2k and 6k axles. These trailers had to go on unimproved rocky dirt and gravel roads fully loaded getting in and out of off road construction worksites. Just one spare on each trailer. Most spares were never used.
Much simpler to run a commercial grade all steel ply carcass LT235/85-16 E at 3042 lbs capacity like the Bridgestone R-238 or the higher priced Michelin XPS Rib tire.

The Nash 26x shows a 9200 gvwr and oem ST225/75-15 E tires and probably 5.2k 6 lug wheels. I've never heard of a 6 lug wheel rated for 3750 lbs capacity at 110 psi.
You might try southwestwheel.com also.
