Another guy looking to switch to LT tires
I have 225/75-15 LRD power king towmax on my trailer which it came with when new. They probably have under 1000miles on them and look like new. But I have read nothing good about them and am a little worried. My axles are 4400 lb rated each so I need a tire rated at least 2200 lbs. The only tire that people seem to recomend are Maxxis and I can't find them here. Also, the speed rating of ST tire is an issue for me. Its not that I want to go fast, But i hate to be right near the limit of that rating.
So I'm wondering if anyone has switched to LT tires for the 15 inch rims. I see lots doing this for 16" but not 15's.
Looking on tire rack for info purposes this is what I found: Stock ST225 75 15 are rated 2540lbs @65psi, LT235 75's LRD are2335lb @65 psi and 255 70's LRD can carry 2553 @ 65psi.
What do you think about moving to an LT?
