"Tired" Trailer

I have an Aluma Lite 5th wheel travel trailer by Holliday Rambler with ST 225/75R 15 load range D tires on it. After reading your articles and having a blowout with body damage, I have decided to get new tires. I checked with a local tire dealer who called three warehouses and they all said a 15" tire is simply not made, just a 16" Michelin (XPS) or a Goodyear Unisteel G-159 which are 17". Is this correct?

Tom, I have just reviewed the Goodyear catalog and I do see two Unisteel G114 trailer tires that are listed. A 8.25 R15 TR and a 10.0 R15 TR. Perhaps one of these will work. Have your dealer check the availability on these specific tires for you. It may take some effort on his part to seek these out, but they should still be available.
