Also is there a need to have the tires on a trailer balanced
You cannot increase the load range, unless you have mag wheels.
All steel whell manufacturers have warned that when a steel wheel has been in service for a long period, such as yours, that if you increased the load rating with new tires, the wheel will likely split around the circumference.
Of course, you can replace the wheels and be safe.
The size tire you have is still good, ST 225/75R15
