Much appreciated!!
When looking for replacements with more load capacity than your OE tires you're also looking at having to change rims.

There are more than a half dozen trailer tire manufacturers that manufacture the ST235/85R16E tire with a load capacity of 3640# at 80 PSI. They are a little taller (1.1") and a little wider (.3").

Goodyear Unisteel G614 RST is a great tire to consider. One of the best made if not the best.

Unless I'm looking at it wrong, a lot of the $400 prices I'm seeing include the new sized rims..........

GOODYEAR LT215/75R-17.5" RADIAL Tire/Modular Rim (8 Lug), L.R. H

Wouldn't that be plug and play???
