I am in need of ST205/75R15 tires for my Keystone Sprinter 249rks. I have gotten a few quotes from local tire dealers but none are name brand tires. Does anyone have a good recommendation? Thanks for you help

There is NO quality "brand name" ST rated tires any more. ALL are made in China and ALL it seems are junk. I personally would seriously look for a LT rated 15 inch tires.

I think you'll have an extreamly hard time finding an LT tire in a 205/75/15, that size tire is more typical of a passenger car. Passenger car tires obviously don't have the required weight rating for a trailer. I looked since my parents have a car that blew a motor with new 205/75/15's on it, but they are only rated for 1,400lbs, while my trailer tires are load range C, right around 1,800lbs.

BTW My TT has 3 Carlisles on it that have made it 4 years and don't have any dry rot yet if that helps. They are made in China though.

One thing though, I see your travel trailer is an 05. If the tires on it where also made in 05 you should still have a couple more years out of them, unless they're worn out that is. Most on here say the tires should be replaced every 5 years.

I've had good luck with Goodyear Marathons.. keep them aired to the max all of the time..

I would see if 225/75-15 D Marathons will fit under the TT.. if so, size does matter.. bigger is better.. (205 = 27.1 in high & 1820 lb @ 50 psi, 225 = 28.3 in high & 2540 lb @ 65 psi)

And.. don't forget good steel valve stems when you change tires..

I would think you would want the lowest profile tire you could use to inrease stablity.

moving up from a C load range (50 psi)to a 225/75-15 D tire (65 psi) is a good upgrade from a performance/relibility and stability standpoint for a trailer tire. Lower profile in a weight carring tire such as a ST or LT only means a smaller/lower capacity tire. I would recommend a LT tire if you want to move up a size and a load range. Goodyear has a LT215/75-15 D laod range Wrangler H/T. There are also other good trailer tires in the LT235/75-15 C load range area if those size will fit under your trailers wheel wells.

You might check Cooper tires, I don't know if they have them in your size but my 225/75/15D ST custom trailer tires are holding up great, they've been on for 3 years now and normally carry 12,500 lbs on them.

I had good luck with my Goodyear Marathon's that
came on my Sunnybrook. They were made in Canada
my new ones in China. I did go up one load rating
and had them put High Pressure stems on them. I
bought them at Sam's Club, they gave me a much better price than local Goodyear Dealers. My
Trailer doesn't have a slide so it's a light one.
