You might think about the wheels before you buy D rated tires. My trailer came with steel wheels and C tires from the factory. I think the wheels are only rated to 50 psi. If you have Aluminum wheels and they are rated to 65 psi then you need the D tires. 65 psi tires at 50 psi seems like a recipe for faliure to me. A tire that most likely will work on the trailer is a 235-15 like the Michlen LTX. Or the Goodyear. These come in a extra load tire that is rated at about 2000 lbs and for 50 psi inflation. And not subject to a high failure rate like the ST tires. I have over 4 years and a whole lota miles including Alaska on mine with no problemsIf you just have to have the ST tires or do not want to deal with making a radical change I would go with the GYM. Load range C if you have steel wheels and a suggested inflation 50 lbs or under. Load range D for Al wheels and inflation over 50. My neighbor lost 2 Towmasters on his 5th wheel late this summer. Lot of colateral damage too. His second major tire failure in 4 years.
