Good 15" off road tires for toyhauler

Well, Im about ready to upgrade from my stock soft rubber 15" Transmaster Load Range D's to a more rugged tire suitable for sharp rocky off road driving. I was considering Michelin XPS Ribs but they don't come in 15".

Wondering what 15" tires would be best for taking the TH off road, driving over sharp rocks etc. A good rugged steel tread and steel sidewall is what I need.

Any suggestions? ST225/75R15

15" ST trailer tires are available in load ranges F, G, and H. These are built for use on construction trailers.

To get a good all season radial suited for on/off road use you will have to upgrade to 16" wheels and Light Truck tires. The LT225/75R16 LRE will normally be a good fit.
