In order to answer the question, I need to know the tire size. My recommendations would be different for a 14" - a second answer for a 15" - and a third answer for a 16"

That trailer came with 14" tires when new.


Obviously, my earlier answer was tongue-in-cheek, though they are guaranteed to not go flat.

Just bought a 1966 20' Globe Trotter (2900#) with Carlisle Trail ST225/75R15 Range E. I need to replace and was wondering if Michelin LTX M/S - 225/75R15 would work?

Michelin doesn't produce a 225/75R15! In fact the only thing available in a 225/75R15 that would be suitable are ST's. No LT's!

I think he may have meant the Michelin LTX M/S2 P235/75R15

The concerns came from people who don't have them on their trailer.A thicker sidewall on a tandem wheel trailer is a advantage when turning sharp at low speeds.

Ride quality is the same as the LTX (I have had them both).The Ribs perform great for us.

I would recommend the Yokohama RY215 for a GT

I use these bad boys--235/75 R15 BF Goodrich A/T KO2. A tier 1 tire, made in USA, excellent traction and ride quality, and they look awesome. They have less capacity than the crap-box, ChiCom Goodyear Marathons they replaced, but I don't have to constantly worry about them about to blow. Even with the lower capacity I have nearly 1000 lbs of extra capacity even at the Airstream's max rated weight.
