Scrub Factor

I've read many of the tire/ wheel posts but have not come across the info I'm looking for. If I change my 15" ST tires to 15" LT tires will I run a risk of damaging the rim, bearings, tires due to the scrub on a triple axle in a sharp turn? Evidently the ST tire is designed for the scrub factor trailers experience that the TV tires do not.

Same question regarding scrub with a switch from 15" ST to 16"LT.

BTW - would I have a clearance issue with 3-16" tires in a wheel well designed for 3-15" tires? Going to 16" will take out ~ 3" of the wheel well clearance if I understand the posts on this subject correctly.
