Since you have a 14 inch tire and are in Australia, have you looked at maybe what we refer to as a Euro size tire. These are usually 8 ply rated tires and are made for heavy applications like trailers, transporter vans, etc.....and are more common in the European markets.
Just off the top of my head, I know Hankook, Kumho, and Continental (but I think the continental is 6 ply) build these, as do some other brands. The Euro tires are sized just a hair different, which I explained more in detail here:
Tire Choices: I'm confused!
These tires may be more accessable to you than a ST tire, if you want to look.

I think the Hankook model is an RA08 and you may have available a RA18 or RA10 in the land down under, but don't know of the latter two's sizing schemes.
