Replacement Tire for 1961 Vintage Travel Trailer

Question:

Hello, I picked up a 1961 Winnebago Travel Trailer that Im remodeling. The trailer and camper itself are in pretty good shape. But the tires are a total mystery. The tires on it currently are old mismatched car tires - one is a big all-terrain 215/75 15 and the other 215/70 15. Both fit in the wheel wells with side clearance of 1 3/4inch and 2inch and top clearance maybe 5 inches. The smaller tire is about 26 1/2inch diameter. The trailer itself is small - about 10ft long 13 ft to hitch, 6 ft wide. My guess it weighs no more that 1000 to 1300 lbs empty as it is easy to move around the driveway by hand. There is no information on this trailer online or on the trailer itself. 5 holes 4.5. I think 15inch tires on this are too big given pictures of similar sized travel trailers the tires look tiny on some of those. Im guessing C load however to be safe. Would a 13inch or 14inch C load be ok? Will they fit? Any advice / tire suggestions would be appreciated Thanks,

Expert Reply:

Given the dimensions and clearances you listed your best option for a tire size would be the 205/75-14 which is the same width as your narrower tire and has a diameter of 26.3 inches. Based on the weight of your trailer you mentioned basically any Load Range would work fine. For a radial tire and wheel that is white we have the part # AM32153 or maybe a nicer wheel design the # 274-000013 would work great.
