The C range tires would be fine, but for a few extra bucks, why not go with the D's?
And you don't have to air the tires up to their maximum rating, just for the load you put on them, so your original rims will be fine.

My trailer was built the 29th week of 2012 (2013 model) and my tires are-

3- 23rd week
1- 22nd week
1- 19th week- spare
All of 2012- so about 1.5-2.5 months old.

Yes anybody can install the tires. And on the Kumhos I also found them to be the only D rated 14" tire I could find. I will be putting them on my boat trailer either this summer or next. We have used the kumho lt truck tired on some if our vehicles and had very good luck- lots of miles and almost no flats. Highly recomend kumho as long as their quality is still the same, its been about 3-4 years since we had them.

Watch them like a hawk. I had BJs Warehouse put the Michelin M+S2 E rated tries on my truck. They put 32 PSI in them. When I said I needed 75 PSI the mechanic looked at me as if I was, well, "less than smart".

He gave me the "psssh, the machine only goes to 40" and the eye roll.

I told him I needed at least 60 to mount the tires and I would fill them when I got home. He went to his boss and (he thought I was not looking) he gave his boss the thumb indication my way while he talked.

Apparently his boss told him he had to take the tire off the mounting machine and put whatever air pressure I wanted in them using the manual chuck.

He gave me a dirty look and put the correct pressure in the tire. When he mounted them I watched and when he went to the air wrench, I asked him to use the color coded calibrated torque wrenches he had on the wall to final torque the wheels. He said he was just going to do that, then went and did the final torques.

He might have known he had to torque the wheels, I know he had the tools, but I made sure it was done before I left.

Not sure I will be getting my next truck tire there.

If your in the tulsa area I've heard good things about Robertson tires. I have been using Discount tires recently (since they are in OK now) and have had extremely good service from them- I even ordered a set of truck tires and rims (oversized tires) that was delivered to my house, put them on and I thought they looked to small, called them and they exchanged them for a larger size for free. (I never drove on the tires, otherwise it would have been a diff. story). I think I bought about 20 tires from them last year.
