Not to worry, tire stores are at nearly exit on the interstate in the south and SW. Exploding truck and ST tires keep them busy in the summer. Provided you go slow, tire trouble is much less likely in the winter.
If you are buying tires, I would go with LT of P rated extra load. You have a small trailer so you should be able to find them in your load range without changing wheels. 225 is the standard 15 inch size, but 235's will fit without difficulty. The cost is not that much more and blowouts are much less common. With lower inflation and more flex in the sidewall, your ride will be much smoother with motor vehicle tires.
