Anyone tried the Yokohama Y356 LT tires?

My sister-in-law has a SOB 21' trailer with 14" wheels. She's been running Maxxis M8008 tires in ST 205-75/R14. The tires are about 6 years old, mostly just sitting in the back yard and showing lots of dry rot. It's time to replace them before a trip in December. I'm no fan of ST tires so I was trying to find something in an LT tire. Couldn't find anything in a Michelin or BF Goodrich, so I checked Yokohama and up popped the Yokohama Y356 LT 195-75/R14 Load Range D, 25.8" dia., and 1710 lbs load capacity, rated for 99 mph. It's about 5/16" less in diameter than the Maxxis that came on the trailer.

Anyone have any experience with this tire? I saw it on Tire Rack:

So Long!

I had to modify this post because I didn't realize that we were talking about going from an ST205/75R14 Load Range C with a load carrying capacity of 1760@ at 50 psi to an LT195/75R14 Load Range D with a load carrying capacity of 1710# at 65 psi.

Given what I now know, this seems like a reasonable swap.

I think the 185/R14 LRD would be a better choice. It will provide load capacity in excess of the OE tires. l=Blackwall&partnum=8R43568&tab=Specs

Images: 67 nephews went off to buy tires for the trailer at the local store which of course was not a Yokohama dealer. So they got what the dealer had....Carlisle ST tires. Aaaaarrrrrge! The Carlisle has the highest number of complaints of any trailer tire at the NHTSA.
So Long!
