We have a good solution but I believe the Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Tire with 15" Hi-Spec Aluminum Wheel part # AM32684 has the wrong wheel lug pattern. With the 14" wheels Airstream used a 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern and used a 6 on 5" spacing on the 15" wheels like the one above. My recommandations are for the 5 on 4.5" if you do in fact have a 6 lug wheel please let me know. Your Airstream has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 6300 lbs. and they recommend using load range C tires.

I have several options available and have linked the entire selection below for both the ST205/75R15 and the ST225/75R15 that meets all of the criteria required for your Airstream. You just need to check and see if you have the larger or smaller of the sizes listed. Don't worry about the last number just the first two. You'll have either a 205/75 or a 225/75 this will be listed on the sidewall of the tire.

I really like both of these options but that's just an appearance thing any of them on the list will work well and suit your style.

Karrier ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire with 15" Aluminum Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range C part # AM32404
