Right tire size?

Hello folks, I'm a new member and have a million questions. Today I'll only ask one or two , okay , maybe three. I have a 1959 Caravanner with a single axle. Can anyone tell me if this unit is supposed to have 14 or15 inch tires on it? My wife and I acquired it from her parents. We have wheels in both sizes. Should we buy bias or radials. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Dan

Welcome to the forums.
Your trailer should have 15" tires on it. As far as radial or bias, radial offers less rolling resistance and a smoother ride, at least until the belts separate...bias tires are taller and narrower, and replacements can be tough to come by on the road.

That illustrates my point about not getting non-standard tires perfectly, thank you. You cannot walk into a tire store and buy a replacement and leave with the new tire on the spot if you have a flat.
