It looks like the only Maxxis available is the UE-168 Bravo 205/70R14C. But even though a D tire, it has a max load of only 1874. While an improvement over the C max load of 1760, I'd like to have more of a safety margin.
Kumho offers two choices. The Radial 857 195R14C gives me a 2094 max load and the Radial 857 205R14C 2271 lbs. The only disadvantages of the 205 are $7 higher cost and 1" larger diameter (27") than the tire currently on the trailer. But I believe some are running 27" tires without a problem.
I'm leaning to the Kumho Radial 857 205R14C. Would anyone like to express any opinions about my choice? I know it is difficult to pry opinions out of people on this forum, but I thought I'd give it a shot.
See attached summary of my research.
