I buy Maxxis. Never had a problem. Make sure whatever tire you get, have them balanced, it is well worth the extra $$$. ALL trailer tires are made in...you guessed it, CHINA.

More plys won’t help, you’re limited out near the 15” wheel's weight and psi capacity as it is.

The trouble-free solution is to bump up to a 16” rim with the same 6-bolt pattern.
With 16s and only needing an extra 1/2” to fit, now you can select a higher quality LT225/75R-16E tire with dozens to choose from.

Instead of 65mph ST ‘china bombs’ running 140+* sidewall temps, now you’ll have 99mph LTs with cooler 100* sidewalls and an increase to 2,680 lbs weight rating instead of 2,540 on the ST.
Worry-free travels looking forward instead of watching the rear for the next blowout tearing up your fender wells.

Duravis R250 LT225/75R-16E....sidewalls don't squat, standin' tall.

RV mfrs rate their trailers differently from utility trailers. Whereas a trailer with tandem 6-lug 5200lb axles comes with a 9,995lb GVWR, an RV with the same axles will be rated at 12k GVWR. Pin weight is included.

Subtract your pin weight (on the truck) from the RVs total weight and you’ll come in right at the ST tire’s limits. The LT gives you another 140# beyond that in a much better made tire.

10,500 dry and its only a 2 axle trailer, what brand is that thing? Are those Dexters under that? That's one heavy a** trailer. What tires did it have new? TowMax are a great trailer tire, but I think you need a third axle.
