tires for 2005 19 bambi

Ihave to replace tires which are st235/75 r15 marathons. mchelin ltx p235/ 75 r15xl seem to be a very close fit . it has load capacity of of 108. would this be a proper replacement for the marathons?? has anyone used some other non st tire for this trailer or has anyone used this tire

thanks, this whole tire issue is a mess. if those wheel openings on bambi were bigger this would not be such a issue or if airstream did it right at the factory we would not have such problems

my repair guy says to put on marathons which is what he runs on his non airstream rig. and stay at the speed limits or below and there should be no issues

thanks everyone

I run those Michelin tires on my Classic 25fb which is heavier. No issues in 3 years.
