7-14.5 Tires or?

1958 18' Traveler, tires are weathered & time to replace.
I have read allot of good about these bias ply tires but wanted to get some feedback before buying new ones.

I think you should get some 15" wheels and tires that you would be able to easily find on the road, not something you will probably either have to mail order or go to a farm implement store to get.
I used to work for a major tire manufacturer, and if somebody came in on a Saturday or Sunday looking for 14.5" tire, they would usually have to wait until Monday to get it.

We typically will not be traveling very far with this vintage trailer. I am much more concerned about Safety and Originality and I expect that we will be carrying a spare.
I think I would still want an 8 Ply Bias Trailer Tire from what I have read. These types of tire would help absorb vibrations since this '58 has Springs that is important to me.
