Default Tire size change?

I need to replace my tires. WM has the Freestar M-108 ST215s considerably less $ than the 205s. An objection to uping 1 size? Thanks

It was recommended we go up to the next size. We didn't because of the cost of new wheels, but if the tire and wheel will fit inside the wheel well on your trailer, you can do it.

Most stuff at WalMart comes from China.

Are those China tires?

Although I didn't fine where Freemaster tires are made, I have checked reviews. The 15inch D tires got high reviews on Driving life.com. I have seen a few reports of a few failures on 14 inch C tires. The tires on my unit were on it from the factory to my knowledge.

Although I didn't see Freestar or Freemaster tires on this list .. some good info here:

Who Makes Your Tires Chart - Automotive | DSLReports Forums

Reading reviews on Amazon.com, the tire is made in China.

OK, I found some 14 inch "D" rated 8 ply radial trailer tires. The specks show a much better side wall. Cost more but should give better service. Carlisle brand.
