Helpful Expert Reply:

When it comes to tire size and clearance, you want 3" on the top for suspension travel and 1-2" of clearance from the side of the tire to the closest part of the trailer. Based on the dimensions of the # ASR2KHDS03 it looks like the distance from the center of your wheel on your hub to the trailer frame will be 8-1/2". That is assuming nothing else on the trailer will be closer. This means the width of the tire should be no more than 15" which none of our trailer tires even come close to.

If you are using a hub like the # 84546UC3-EZ you need a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern for your wheel. You would be looking at a 205/75-15, 225/75-15, or 235/75-15 tire. Even the Westlake ST235/75R15 Radial Off-Road Trailer Tire - Load Range D # WST54FR doesn't even come close at 9.3" wide. Your biggest concern would be the height.

I have attached a link to all of our 15" tires and wheels with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern that you can check out.
