It won't really be necessary to upgrade the load range of your trailer tires as the tires only need to be rated for the weight of the boat/trailer minus the tongue which is usually around 10-15% of the boat/trailer weight. That said, you could upgrade to a higher load range without issue for better peace of mind. The ride would just be a bit stiffer. I recommend the Loadstar 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel part # AM30670 which has a load range c rating suited for use up to 990 lbs per tire. The wheel/tire combos don't come pre-balanced as this is not needed for trailers.

Yes, you can use a spare tire holder like the Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier part # FSTC1000301 on your trailer so you can hold an extra wheel/tire in case of emergencies. The mount simply bolts onto the frame and then you can bolt your wheel/tire to the mount with the included hardware.
