Read up on them, they have great reviews. They are a european designation truck/van/trailer tire. 205s are rated to carry over 2000#, the 195 size is equal in size but carries more weight than a ST205

My 2703WS has 6731# on the tires (weighed at CAT scales), the Westlake st205 tires are max rated to 1760# each=7,040 total capacity of 4 tires; that only leaves 77# reserve/cushion per tire if the weight is evenly distributed between the 4 tires; with the tork flex axles unless perfected level and balanced that is not likly the case.

I had noticed the tires were maxed out at 1760# per tire and the GVW of the TT is 7,500. The axles are 3,500 (7,000# total). They really squeak the numbers in there. I know...600# for the tongue weight which leaves 6,900#. Still?
