Argosy Trailer Tires "What are you running"

I have a 78 Argosy 24ft trailer with 7.00 x 15 Bias tires. I would like to know what tires other Argosy trailer owners are running with success? Please just a simple answer of what brand- what size- recommend yes/no. Thank you for your replies.

Same here, Michelin P235 75 R15XL. I bought our 77 Argosy 24, 2 years ago and that was the first thing that I replaced.

Know your real tire load before you buy so you get big enough with the proper Load Range. Get on a scale. There is good general info on tires and a weight worksheet HERE that will work for any brand tire of RV.

77 Argosy 26, Michelin LTX MS2 235/75R16 65 psi on steel wheels.
THE FIRST AND ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I BOUGHT FOR THE TRAILER.
Who wants to deal much less think about a blow out ?
