Bought a 51 FC need tire and wheel advice

Hi there, need to buy tires and wheels for 51 FC ASAP , trailer is 21' single axle, 2540 dry, probably 3000-3500# loaded up . Was thinking Michelin STs? Shouldn't need LTs, only need a d weight rating. And ideas? Also would the steel rims painted red from the airstream supplier be correct ? We don't plan on running the split rims or original 7-15 tires!

I have heard that some have gone here to buy wheels.

Not sure for your vintage - and most AS wheels are
Load capacity should be around 2500 pounds or better
Off set is zero
