This is the options approved by your trailer’s manufacturer--- “16″ Aluminum Wheels And “E” Rated Tires IPO 15″”.
To understand what that “In Place
Of 15” means is to understand tire industry standards.
However, your trailer’s manufacturer can recommend any tire that constitutes what they consider an appropriate fitment on your trailer. Will your trailer’s manufacturer recommend your choice, 95% doubtful. It’s not that your selection is inferior, its all about technicalities for the vehicle manufacturer.
Same thing with the Firestone warranty. Do they view the LT tire a misapplication? Yes! Why? Because it’s not the same construction as the Original Equipment tire. But, it wont hurt to ask.
