I'm just going to guess that you have GAWR axles around 6750#. You can look on your certification label to confirm that.
None, Zero LT235/85R16E tires or any other LT 16" LRE tires are qualified for use on those axles.
You're gonna have to start thinking tire/rim packages for replacements if you want american made stuff.
The best and most durable packages will most likely be found in the 17.5" tire rim sizes.
The American made LT235/85R16G tires are expensive but qualify for your axles at 3750# at 110 PSI but they require a 16x6.5" rim with a high pressure 110 PSI rating.
New, more beefy 16' ST tires are coming from over there. Their ratings are 4080# at 110 psi and all that I've seen have a 75 MPH speed rating.
Good luck, and research, research, research!
