They have probably gone low several times over the years and the sidewall has weakened. Not worth the risk of damaging your camper, ruining your vacation.....or worse.

What is the difference, if any, between St tires and Lt or pass tires? I found some regular LT tires and they seem to be less expensive than ST ones.

LT are not designed to handle the turning / twisting loads that travel trailer axles exert on tires. I wouldn't replace using LT. But I definitely would replace those tires.

tire concensus

What size tire, rim and load range are they
Am I correct in assuming this is a single axle trailer?

I am going to replace them. Here is what I am having trouble with. According to the Jayco archives, the trailer came with 13 inch load c tires, ST175/80d13. Now I thought that the "d" was the load range. Am I correct? Is so what is with the web site? I have been looking at tires and a load c is rated for 1360lbs, for a total of 2720. The trailer gvw is 2900 and change. Not trying to be cheap (more like frugal), but the d range are almost twice as much.

You should install the load range D tires. I just replaced mine on my 228 and they are rated for 1710 lbs. each. If you were to load you trailer to these GVWR you will over load the tires. As well the load range D tires come in 185/80-13 size. Ryan
