When used on RV trailer axles or a pick-up truck that load index (1874) MUST be reduced to 1703 lbs..

There are no UTQG codes for LT & ST tires.

I have 16" wheels but would need 4 axels for those to come close to my needs.

Speed Rating

Newer tires are rated for 81 mph instead of 65. Make sure whatever tire you buy is rated for 81 mph. I upgraded all of 11 of my trailer tires to 81 mph tires, and I haven't had a flat since. Taskmaster tires from etrailer are M rated for 81 mph, although the only place they state that is in the video for the tires. Get the highest load rating you can, because most tires are close to max rating on most trailers, and by the time you load all your junk in it, you're probably over weight.

Those tires had roughly 3000 miles on them and only 2 years old. We were just driving down the interstate when it blew. I felt a slight tug while driving, I looked in my mirror to look to change lanes when I saw all of the shrapnel flying out from both side of the camper. Of course there were orange barrels as far as we could see so I dove in between two of them to get to the shoulder of the road to change it out. Thank God it was on the passenger side. A few months later I replaced all of them. The tire shop showed me that another tire had broken belts and was ready to blow next.

This picture is the wheel well. Not much to it, just a layer of that black plastic covering some 1/4" luan. And if you look close enough you can see the water lines that were above. I always laugh when people want to live in their camper in the winter!

It appears LT tires will work for 16" wheels but not for 15" wheels, I know my TT will be over the 1703 lbs per wheel.
