Federal industry wide ratings any tire with a ST rating is rated for a maximum speed rating of 65 MPH at the proper inflation.

Not all are rated at 65mph. Some of the ST tires are speed rated "L" at 75MPH. The Hercules H-901 225/75/15 is Load Range F and Speed Rated L (75MPH)

I recently switched to 10 ply truck tires after having blow outs with 10 ply trailer tires.

The trailer pulls so much better now.
I had to go to 16 inch wheels to use the LT225-75-16 Truck tires.

LT truck tires are the way to go, IMO.

Anyways, my trailer uses 5 lug 4 1/2" bolt pattern.
I was amazed to only find one wheel company that made a 16 inch- 5 lug 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern wheel in steel.

Where did you find the 16 inch wheels with the 5x4.5 bolt pattern?
