there are a few factors at hand that are very important. What is the gross weight of your rig ,and how much of that weight is on the tires (how much weight goes on the tow rig also).

Next question is do you have clearance for a 28" tire for full range of suspesion travel +3/4" at its max range.

after see if its poss to deal with a 28" tire I would run 225-75-15 load range "D" or "G" tire made by Maxxis or Goodyear. a 225-75-15 D tire is about the min tire needed for a 10,000 gross weight trailer , IMHO its best suited to trailers around 8000 max.

there is a lot of good info on tires on this web site , try a search of old topics.

looking at the weights you have posted Jayco had put the bare min for tires under the trailer ! Most 205 tires have a a load rating of 1820 lbs,thats only 400 more then your trailer gross. So depending on how it was loaded the tires could be carrying more then there rateing (if my math is correct). I did a axel flip for my dad on his Sunline , it came from the factory with 205-75-15" c tires. It now has 225-75-15 D tires on it with more then enough room. 225 D tires carry 2500lbs each, this give you a much bigger margine to prevent blow outs and it will make it more stable on the highway.

If you have room the 225 d rated would be a good tire for that size rig. I would try and stay away from the tires made in China for the most part and put on something like a Cooper or Maxxis, not sure where the Maxxis is made but they are getting good reports. I use the Coopers and they seem to be good tires as well.
