I have a 1976 28' Argosy tandem axle and have 2.5 year old Power King 7.00x15LT tires. I have to replace one of them. My local guy got me a Carlisle ST205/90D15 (he had previously gotten me the Power Kings). On the tire it says "replaces 7.00x15LT" is it okay to put this tire on the front right wheel location??? Is there a need to replace the front left with exactly the same tire? The diameter certainly is very close when I measure. I plan to trailer from Vermont to Texas and back before Thanksgiving. Thanks you for your help.
Torsion axles operate very differently from spring suspended axles.
All 4 tires must be the same.
If not, you can cause one or more of the following.
1. Sway due to improper weight loading.
2. Excessive wear on the overloaded tire/tires.
3. Ruin the rubber rods in one side or both side of an axle, due to carrying more weight than designed.
