1/2 ton owners who keep their rotation intervals in spec can also have them rebalanced on each rotation. You'd think it only needs done once, but you'd be surprised. Plus sometimes weights fall off and you don't notice.

Age is indicated by last 4 digits in DOT number as I recall. Detailed info available through an internet search.

I've not settled on the tire decision yet nor whether I need to change 15" wheels to 16". Before going to 16", I've been casting about for reliable 15" since I like the original wheel and moon beam hub cap look. Maxxis still sounds like a good choice and I notice that Vintage Campers has &:00-15 LT Loadstar Bias Tires, 10 ply, that supposedly match originals. Does anyone know about Loadstar?
Thanks,
Jim

Hey JRF, more fine folks might reply if you could put your old fingers on the right keys! Assuming you were looking for a near match to original tire size, I think you meant: From Vintage Campers website:
7:00-15 LT Loadstar Bias Tire

There is also this option:

From Trailer Parts Superstore website:
ST225/75D-15 H188 Trailer Tire
