"Provider" trailer tires?

I'm going through the paces of getting my trailer ready for camping. I'm down to the tires. As anticipated the tires that came with the trailer I have never heard of. The are "provider" ST225/75R15 LR-D. They LOOK pretty good as they seem to carry the weight of the trailer well but looks can be deceiving. Does anyone else have these tire? And what do you think of them?

Tires and Wheels from China

We have the same questions on our tires. Althought it's difficult to imagine Forest River would sacrifice an iota of safety, I keep seeing the posts back some time about tires and wheels on the Rockford Signature Ultra Lite 8289 and similar models. Are the failures due to a manufacturing defect or not.

So my tires are "Power Touring" but I'm guessing that they are the same ones (Trail Express?)people are concerned about. They are ST 225/75 R 15 with two steel and one cord ply. 50 psi max inflation. Load range "C". They are mounted on Sumec wheels.

I've purchased A1A Tire Minders and I hope that move will give me some peace of mind.
