What are you guys with older TT's doing for tires? I just purchased an '82 Holiday Rambler. It has 14" tires and I am having a difficult time (impossible) finding 14" LT's. Have you gone to 15"s? My trailer is not sitting in my driveway currently, so it is hard to measure and see if a 15 (16) will fit. Any help is appreciated.

Discount Tire sells Carlisle tires, they might have to order your size, but hey, it will be worth the wait cause they are the cheapest folks around. Be sure to give them correct load range and size!

Tires in 14" sizes are very difficult to find. Just about the only vehicle using them is the Ford Ranger pickup trucks. This is the size used on most bass boats, and their owners have trouble finding tires.

I would suggest you go the Kumho 857's or the Maxxis M8008's on a travel trailer. They're as good as it gets in 14".

It's doubtful that there was ever an E rated 10 ply 14" tire made. Just a few E rated 15" tires are available, and they're ST tires--not P or LT tires.
