I searched for 15" LT tires and couldn't find any so I went with 16"

Really, I haven't seen a one. I have seen XL and euro commercial tires, but not LTs in 15"...at least in 2011 when I was shopping.

15" LT tires

Here are a few 15" LT tire choices.

235/75/15 LRE #2760
Nokian Rotiva AT-

225/70/15 LRD #2,470
GoodYear Cargo G26-

LT235/75/15 LRD #2,335
Pirelli Scorpion ATR-

LT215/75/15 LRD #2,094
GoodYear Wrangler HT-

GoodYear Wrangler AT/S-

7R15LT LRD #2040
Yokohama RY 215-

Now, if you have to have a Michelin LT tire, that is when you must move to 16"

Top,

I do see a couple there that seem to fit the "traditional" American LT standard or criteria.

Here's what bothers me, and we'll need Capri or Tireman to register, but I am seeing LT used in the "Name" and not in the size stamping. My understanding is that is where the mandated stated capability classification occurs (among other stampings, like the DOT, etc.) as opposed to the "marketing" name stamping. Look at Nexen, for example. Their "LT" has less capacity (and no LT sizing labeling) than their "non-LT", which carries no P, XL, nor LT designation in the size stamping??????

I have a fear that there's some kind of loophole in naming criteria that is misleading.

None-the-less, I acquiesce to your rebuttal to my "no 15" LT" statement. However, let me rephrase. For the larger ASes (30' Classic, GVWR at 10,000, considering 10 - 15% TW) I now see only one 15" tire that would work for me, considering the 85% of stated capacity margin for trailer use. That being the Nokian.

I don't think that was available in 2011?????? At least I never found it...and I'm cheap. If I wouldn't have had to buy wheels, I wouldn't have.

If I must have an LRE, I must move to a Mich 16" or apparently, Nokian.

Is it a wieght rating thing or a speed rating over ST. You can get a higher weight in ST-15's, Powerking STR for one

Top is right, but I found that I had special order most of those. If I walk into a Discount Tire, Sears or Costco anywhere in the nation chances are they'll have the Michelin LTX in 16's. For us as full-timers on the road, having something that is everywhere is more ideal than a tire we would have to special order to get on hand.

My answer to post 22: Higher load capacity in a non-ST. I won't discuss the pros and cons of an ST...it has been beat to death. You can search the threads. For me, I prefer an LT and I have to have an LRE with my weight.

For OP (bertheep), I am not sure how much weight is on your axles, fully loaded with gear and fluids....etc. I suspect you are marginal for a LRD tire after the de-rating for a non- ST tire, but it appears the Nokian would certainly work....maybe the Goodyear cargo. I would definitely weigh your trailer...fully loaded and then multiply the published tire capacity by .85 and see where you are.

Wait, I just noticed a couple of Tops listings are 235s. Didn't I see on here somewhere that 235s don't fit up under the wells? ...or was that 235 75 R16s?

Thumbs up

Rich,

I'm considering these when the time is right...I’m ready…"any time the moment is right", is it right yet ?

I do have Kenda 14 bias on our boat trailer, sfsg, quality appears excellent, but limited miles so far.

Not from etrailer though.. A little cheeper link but I can't locate it now.

Bob

Bob, those are STs though....I just don't trust them....I know many do, but STs are not for me.
