I ordered rims today. Does anyone have a favorite tire brand? My tire guy is recommending Pro Meter trailer tires. I have read of people going with LT truck tires.

I ordered 16x6 steel rims. Nothing fancy just something to hold the donut.

With 16" rims, you can go with name brand LT load range E, Made in the USA tires and travel with confidence.

Good call.

Thanks. If I can find someone who makes a LT 245 in a 70 E that would give me a little more room. I think I can handle the width no prob. I appericiate all the help..

Going to a 16" wheel is a good move for that size trailer.
Your OEM ST D tires 2540 lbs capacity which had plenty of reserve a 10160 lbs total.
I would go with the LT225/75-16 E at 2680 lbs capacity which gives you more at 10720 lb capacity for around a 20 percent reserve capacity. The tire is a 29"-29.2" diameter tire.
All the major LT tire makers have this size which is common on many one ton DRW trucks so finding one on the road will be no problem.

I would get an good commercial truck tire. Duris by Bridgestone, XPS Rib by Michelin. They are all steel carcass and are suited for campers/trailers. You will pay a little more but they are worth it. I use the XPS under my 20k Teton. I have 3 axles.
