How many axles do you have on your trailer and what is the load range of the tires you have now? If it is a single axle trailer and you are using load range d tires which are the highest we offer for a 205/75-15 tire then you are going to be limited to a 4,300 lb weight capacity (2,150 lbs per tire). However, if you have a tandem axle trailer and you are using load range d tires then you then you are going to be limited to a 8,600 lb weight capacity (2,150 lbs per tire).

Therefore, if you have a single axle trailer then I recommend a different tire size but if you have a tandem axle trailer then you will be fine with the 205/75-15 tires so long as they are a load range d. For a replacement 205/75-15 tire I recommend the Goodyear Endurance ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire part # 724861519 because it is made in the USA and comes with a free tire replacement warranty (restrictions apply). If you need a new size tire please let me know what bolt pattern is on your trailer as you will need a new wheel as well.
