Just curious what are your axles rated? Should be on the tag on the left front of the trailer under GAWR.
The Uniroyal tire that blew was only rated to 3,040 lbs., which if correctly installed means you would only have 6K rated axles, or improperly installed if you have 7K axles. If you have 6K axles, the XPS ribs are fine, or Firestone Transforce, or any number of LT truck tires and you only need to inflate to 80psi.
7k axles should run the G, which leaves you with some china tires or the Goodyear G614.
Chevor, you beat me by a couple minutes, DYNA-BEADS best thing running out there, we use them on all things, custom motorcycles, big big trucks and etc. they work great & don't have to worry about the weights falling off etc..
and very in-expensive as a whole.
just my two cents worth but they do work good.

Does this mean the front & rear axle are 7,000 LBS and the GVWR is 14,500 LBS.
I got these numbers right of the tag on the Tr.
Yes. However, the GVWR seems low to me - it should be closer to 15,500 lbs because you get to add the pin weight and the axle rating, but either way it looks like you have 7,000 lb axles.
Just know that by putting on the XPS ribs at 3,040 lbs a tire, you are actually limiting your axles to 6,080 lbs rather than the 7,000 lb capacity. You might weigh the rig to see where you really stand on the axles and the total weight.
You can use a CAT scale - weigh the whole rig, then disconnect and weigh your truck. subtract the truck from the total to get your trailer gross weight, and the initial weigh had the axle weight as one of the numbers. Once you have that, you can make the right choice on tire load range.
