I have been retired for some time so my knowledge is limited- You might try finding 700x15 6 or 8 ply radial tires from one of the smaller manufacturers that specializes in this market- Upgrading to 16 inch wheels could be done if you have sufficient clearance- LT215R16 tires will be approximately 1 inch taller- Sorry I can't be of more assistance- Don

Don, I was not trying to be a jerk, but I have had extensive tire problems and have done a bit of research.

There are no LT tires that are 15" that are load rated to tow my trailer.

My trailer does not have the axle spacing to allow for 16" rims.

Goodyear was making Marathons in Canada, but they switched overseas. Then they brought them back to the USA. But, I understand they will return to China.

If they leave, I'm not aware of any US or Canadian made ST tire.

I appreciate the info from everyone. I think I am in the same boat. 2010

buily in 2009/2010? Bought new at the end of 2011.

Tires are how old? Is there a way to read manufacture date off the sidewall?

Dave

This website explains the DOT tire age code:

The date code on mine for example say "3008", which means they were made in the 30th week of 2008.

Have just removed the 5er wheel and tire that blew out just sitting over the winter, mentioned in the initial thread. The GY marathon that blew was load range D, and I would like my new set of Maxxis replacements to be load range E. Looked on the back of the aluminum rim, but it only listed a max load of 3,042 lbs. There is no mention of max pressure capacity, which would have to be 80 psi for the load range E. It is a TTW aluminum modular rim, with markings of 16X6J, TR4 ZNL, DOT-T, and ET-O, in addition to the max load of 3042 lbs. Does anyone out there know how to determine the max pressure for this rim ? Perhaps there is a site that would have this info, if no one knows ? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Look inside the rim for a sticker or stamping. The max pressure will be on it. If not look for manafac, numbers and google it.

Thanks Crabman, and all. I used to think boats were complicated, pointy end, flat end,etc. -but trying to become a good trailerer is a task.

No offense taken- Do an internet search for Seiberling or Dayton manufacturers for a light truck tire in 700x15 size- I believe the factories are in Ohio- At least they were in the "good old days" when American business were competitive before nafta or whatever regulations covered imports- JMHO- Don

Just got a flyer from local tire store and they have "Nokian Rotiiva AT" tires.
They are legal snow tires and can be left on all year. Note: tread life guarantee is 65,000 kms (40,755 miles) in LT. Goes up to 80,000 kms (50,160 miles) in P metric.

Think I'll throw a set on just before the snow flies.
Any tire people comments welcome.
