Trailer tires

Should I get tires made for trailers or buy car tires? I have an 88 Jayco 16 " trailer that needs tires. Are trailer tires priced less or more.

Your trailer is probably not that heavy. It's a 16 foot trailer correct?

What size are your wheels? 13 or 14 inch.

Most of the problems I have read about ST tires blowing are on heavy trailers. ST's are generally cheap compared to LT's, so for a light trailer, with smaller wheels, I would go ST's. Just do some research on this site and other RV forums and try to find the best ST's you can get to fit.
