You can find LRD tires in that basic size. Just do some more searching. I don't do recommendations so these are just options. The LRD can be found in these brands; Goodyear, Karrier, Power King. I'm sure there are others.

Go to the web site etrailer.com, they carry a ST205/75R/14 tire in a D rated. Bought some from them this summer,don'thave many miles on them sofar but they seem to perfom good. The "D" rated tires are hard to find.

the only thing I've seen in the 205 75R 14 D was a Karrier

Our last trailer had 14" wheels, but the Kuhmo's were out of stock, so we ended up with the Kendra Karriers which came in LRD. They seemed like nice heavy tires, and went over 15,000 mile over two years with no problems ..... They we traded it in .....

Robb,

I had the same problem with my 27' Wildwood XL. The only tire I could find was the Kenda Karrier in load range D. They are fantastic tires and have never had a problem with them. The are ST205 75R 14 Load range D. I bought them here:
$73.99 - Karrier ST205/75R14 tires | Buy Karrier tires at SimpleTire

I hope this helps.

Speed Rating

There are two problems with trailer tires. The load range is usually too low, and the speed rating is also too low. I refuse to buy tires in load range C or 65 mph speed rating. If we all would do that, they'd stop making junk tires. I went from the 205/75R14s to Taskmaster 215/75R14s from etrailer that are LRD and rated for 81 mph. Not many miles on them yet, but so far, I'm very happy. They were about 1/2" taller than my old tires, but that doesn't seem to be a problem. I filled mine to 65 psi and it rode fine. I put the same tires on my boat trailer. The problem with blowouts is the damage they do to both the trailer, and potentially the other tire. I've replaced the fendere on my boat twice now. That costs more than the tire. I got a little damage from the two blowouts on my ROO.

The real issue here is that rv manufacturers and or the dealers that order the rv's from the factories spec undersized tires and rims. We all know why... $$$$$
Our brand new trailer was on overloaded tires the day we picked it up. Unbelievable that this is allowed to happen. We have since upgraded to a d load range up from a c but are exceeding the rim spec of 65 psi max. We have no other choice other than to tolerate this besides upgrading the rims as well. If rv manufacturers used appropriate tires on rims that could take the pressure in the first place these endless threads on tire blow outs and upgrades would be much less prevalent. If buying new again I would get better tires from the factory...... Upgraded rims are not even available for our unit from the factory though.
Now That my friends is dysfunctional!

How can you tell the psi rating of rims?

On our rims there is a sticker on each rim that indicates max psi 65. Forest river rep mentioned the same at the Goshen rally

Steel wheels should have the psi rating stamped on the inside (backside) of the rim, remove from trailer and inspect. Aluminum wheels can be researched online to find the info.
