Kumho tires???

My new TT came with Ranier brand tires... ie... China Bombs with yet another tire brand name...... It's heavy enough that I would like to go to a load range D tire. I'd be interested in the experiences of others that have bought Kumho 857 trailer tires in 14" sizes. From what I can find on line they make an ST207 - 70 - 14 in load range D.

Thanks in advance!

Don't forget to look at the Maxxis m8008 tires. They are holding up for me very well.
If you go with the Kumho it appears they are rated to run at 65 psi, if your rims will handle it.

I had Maxxis on my last trailer and they were good, but I can't find them in load range D for 14" wheels. Am I missing something?

Make sure your rims will take the extra PSI, if not, a dealer probably won't mount them.

The rims will do 65 psi... now if I can find load range D tires. I noticed that Kumho also makes a 215 - 75 - 14 but I couldn't determine the load range.

I do not have experience with kumho trailer tires, but instead, kumho automobile, and work truck tires. All good, all around. No issues. They served their time and then some
