If you are running E rated tires the only trailer tire to buy is the Maxxis M8008. Google it and read the post on all the rv forums.

If you have an extra 1/2" height clearance in the fender wells, you can swap those 15" wheels for 16" wheels, and go with an LT225/75R-16E tire instead. You'll have an extra 140# capacity, a better quality tire, and a higher speed rating than an ST.

The Bridgestone R250 in that size is pretty much indestructible and will still be running 6 years from now.
