New tires for 2006 Jayco Jay Flight

We just bought this 29' foot Jayco Jay Flight camper and will replace tires.
Original are Goodyear ST205/75R15 Marathon Radials.

We think Goodyear Wrangler HT 215/75R15 will work. They're 1/2' overall wider & higher.

Any advice?

IMHO the best tires you can buy for your trailer is BF Goodrich Commercial truck tires. They are American made and work very well. Discount tire has them fro <$150 each.

you know what they say about opinions .... for E-rated and below tires, I believe that Maxxis 8008's are the best option

Should work ok, assuming you have room in the wheel well for the slight 1/2". The larger size gives you a bit of extra weight carrying capacity, a good thing in most trailer tires.

Maxxis has a very good reputation for their ST (trailer) tires - I suggest you look at theirs as well.
