what size tires? please respond within 22 hours and 46 min.....

I was thinking of bidding on these tire covers for my 73 sovereign:
They are for 14-15" rims....
Unfortunately, I am a few hundred miles away from it (the AS, not the covers) and I can't check the tire size. Does anyone know if these will fit??
Thank you.

Since you haven't had a reply yet,

Your trailer appears to be a 29-31ft unit?

If you have radial tires on it they are probably ST225/75r15 and if they are bias they are probably 700-15. My literature says the following--

ST225/75r15 at 28.3" outside dia.
700-15 at 29.2-29.5" outside dia.

The welting on those covers are following the sw/tread line around the tire so they appear to fit exactly what the seller refers to as a ST225/75r15.

If the ebay seller is correct on the size (st225/75r15), then they should fit if you have relatively new radial tires.

Is any one home to look at the size?

Sorry I can't help you with the tire size/fit...but I looked at the ebay link referenced and it appears that the seller has several of these listed and most have a "Buy it Now" option for only a couple of dollars more...just in case you miss the one closing so soon.

Hang in there...someone should be able to help out ~

Those tire covers should work just fine for your Soverign.
