Yes LT tires (if they are the "good french ones") are considered to be more reliable. I would not worry about LT or ST as long as they bring the baby home. They will be replaced anyhu...

Looks like a good find!

As far as Lt or St.....I think it all depends on who your talking to. We own 5 vintage trailers, when we arrive home in about an hour, this little lady will be number 6. We always buy ST.

I'll take trailer tires also thank you. The antique ones on my 75 made the 200 miles home, and as my Father who worked for Gates as a chemical engineer in product improvement once quipped, "If there were no need for different kinds of tires, they would not have been invented." (the first tractor on the farm did not have rubber tires, only steel wheels, he was around for the evolution of tires)

Do a search from outside the forum, many threads about how to post photos - but without being a paying member there is a limit.
