You might try Westlake . Replaced my will pops 225/75/15 c with Westlake 225/75/15 e range. These are a 10 ply tire 80 lb max psi. While they have given me greater peace of mind with the added load strength they do ride a bit harsher.

Here's another vote for Kenda Karrier tires. I run them on my work trailer, same size you have. Great tire!

The OP has 14" rims so the D rating is as high as he can go. The heating up with flex can be easily seen on a TPMS system. On the washboard road from my ranch I was surprised at the temp rise when only traveling at 15 to 20 mph

Our Wildwood came with 14" Load Range C "China Bombs". We upgraded to Load Range D Kenda tires. I highly recommend them. We ordered them through www.simpletire.com and got a low price, fast service and they gave us a list of local installers. I recommend them.

my new Kenda Karrier ST205/75/R14 8PR tires do say they are made in China, ....... but I know for a fact not everything "made in China" is junk, the Kenda reviews are very positive, so I don't have any worry about their quality,...... plus, my DW was "made in China" also, she finds it interesting that so many things in our stores are "made in China",..........

I did the Taskmaster 215/75 R14 in LR D from etrailer.com and they work well. They are also speed rated M (81 MPH). I use them up to 70 or 75 MPH since the interstates down here are 70 MPH. I feel good running these.
