Maxxis, Goodyear endurance and the newer Carlisle radial trail are supposed to be the best. I have Maxxis on the TT and Carlisle on a cargo trailer. Over 2 years on each with no problems. My Maxxis will time out this year at 5 years since manufacture. They were dated almost 3 years old when bought new. Maxxis said if you buy from them directly the tires SHOULD be 2 years old or less. I'm changing mine. Not worth having a blowout on the road.

With a 15" rim, I would switch to LT.

If you are stuck on an ST tire, I think Endurance is the best.

I don't think you will find that size in an LT.

Quick search found this one. Would need to check the load rating.
Wrangler

If you played with the tire size a bit you would have more options.

The OP already has literally dozens of 15" trailer tires to choose from.
LTs in 14-15" are virtually non existent and not the right application for 14-15" trailer rims. The one you posted has like 1800lbs capacity. You can do far better with ST tires.
Not sure whypeople always chime in with the most obscure solutions to problems that don't exist, on this forum.

To the OP, I've had a couple sets of Kenda Karriers with good luck. Mid priced, high speed rated. One set has been sitting in the weather for the last 4+ years with no sign of cracking or degradation.
