Proper size tire for 20' Argosy

Is it 205 or 235 on a 15 inch rim?

Closest size to original is: ST225/75R15 (C)
Original was 7.00/15LT
205 has too low maximum load, and the 235 is a scoche too tall to fit in the wheelwells
I have a set of Cooper 225's on mine, they work well.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Perfect timing for that question I just got in the forum to ask the very same thing. My '76 Argosy 20 is in need of tires. Looks like they've been on there for many years.

I was pricing tires for my 72 Overlander yesterday at Wally's. ST225 15's D rated. $82 each mounted. They say they don't do balancing on trailer tires.

Their initial price was $102. I said "WOW!" The guy said, "WOW good? Or WOW bad?" I told him bad. I saw the same tires on for $77 each, plus shipping, then mounting.

I'd rather get them at Walmart, because they are everywhere, and you can always pull in to one for help.
