Sorry I can't help with your tire question, been 6 years since I bought trailer tires. Hope another member chimes in soon.

These are not recommendations, just places to look around and check prices. There are many other places to look on the WWW.

Try the nearest Farm and Tractor Supply house. I bought two new trailer tires and rims already mounted.

There are many places that you can buy tires and wheels for your RV. Do a search for RV wheels and have at it. Most RV dealers with a parts department will have wheels for you, Camping World, etc. I believe that Maxxis makes a trailer tire 225/75R15 LRE.

Good time to upgrade to 16" rims. With at least two ruined rims, I'd look closely at the running gear and frame. Trailer has hit something hard.

I replaced my old 15" steel wheels and 7 year old Maxxis D range tires with a set of Hi Spec 15" Star aluminum 5 spoke 6 lug wheels and Maxxis E range tires. The Hi Spec wheels have a steel insert at each lug hole and 80 psi rating.

I agree it would be a good time to upgrade to 16" tires and load range E LT tires.
