STR sounds like a radial, maybe even steel.

2004 32' National Sea Breeze 1311 Class A on a F-53 Chassis, CHF, TST TPMS, 5Star Tune.

I think the STR tire is a new tire that they have put out.
STR is part of the brand name.

Maybe you should go to the web site below and do some searching. They have some very good information about tire upgrades when the clearances are close.

What's so good about that? Isn't that the same as all tires, and just about anything else you buy?
A road hazard warranty will cover nails and overloading, the major cause of tire failure.


  • tires installed on a trailer registered or normally used outside the United States and Canada
  • the tire was transferred to another vehicle after it was originally installed
  • the tire is branded as "Blemish" or "NA" or the molded DOT number has been removed or disfigured
  • the tire was repaired only with a self-vulcanizing plug, improper section repairs or in a manner that does not comply with Rubber Manufacturers Association standards
  • tire failures caused by road hazard, potholes, or collision damage
  • vandalism, theft, off-road use, long-term improper storage or other abuse
  • improper mounting procedures or applications
  • over and under inflation, overloading, or failure to maintain proper tire pressure
  • addition of liquids, solids or gases (other than air, nitrogen, carbon dioxide) such as sealers or balancing materials
  • ozone or weather cracks or checking occurring four (4) years after the date of purchase or, if that proof is not available, four (4) years after the DOT serial date
  • mechanical failures, improper alignment, or brake and shock failure
  • the wheel on which the tire is mounted is defective or fails
  • tires with "irregular treadwear" (which is defined as a tread groove depth difference of 2/32nds of an inch or more on the same tire)
Any warranty can be "nitpicked". I'm just saying, you know, compair...

You must back up to a forums index page, then you'll see it.

Scroll up to the top of this page and notice the words:
iRV2 Forums > Travel Trailer, 5th Wheel and Truck Camper forums, >Travel Trailer Discussion
> Tire Size

Click on Travel Trailer Discussion, and that will get you to the forum index screen. Look around on that screen and find the button for posting a new thread.

Grumpy ole man with over 50 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196S, and my tow vehicle is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew.
