HELP- Please- 73' 25' needs tires- need size

My father has been towing an airstream for 40+ years and we can't figure this one out-
I just bought a 73' 25'. The previous owners put Liberators (sp) on them - hey are a Walmart brand- very cheap tire- problem is that Walmart codes their tires so you can't easily replace them . Side wall states 30x9.50 R15. I am looking for Goodyear Radials- any help would be appreciated. feel free to PM me or eglisems@hotmail.com Heading x-country next week and need to get these taken carae of ASAP- All the best-

Any good tire shop could measure the tire Dia. and give you a size. Your limiting factor is the clearance to the top of the wheel well. If the axles are old and have a positive angle keep this in mind.

Tires are one of the "3rd Rail" subjects on the Forums -- touch it and you die! (Well, almost). Fundamentally there has been enormous bandwidth expended extolling and condemning various brands/sizes. Do a search on "tires" and you will have a couple of days reading.

I have had Carlisles, Power King (both Chinese) and Goodyears. The Carlisles were fine for 25000 miles and then 3 out of 4 failed (catastrophically) within 2000 miles of each other so, maybe not.

The others were unremarkable one way or the other.

For what it's worth my trailer wears ST 225/75 R15 tires.
