There are zero LT235/85R16E tires that would be appropriate fitments for trailer service that have enough load capacity to qualify for your GAWR axles.
In the ST design there are the ST235/85R16E rated at 3640# @ 80 PSI, ST235/85R16F rated at 3960# @ 95 PSI and the ST235/80R16G rated at 4080# @ 110 PSI.
In the LT design there are the steel cased LT235/85R16G for trailer service that are rated at 3750# @ 110 PSI. One is made in the USA and numerous others from off shore manufacturers.
