If I needed 15" tires, I'd sure look at these.

Transeagle ST Radial 225/75R15. available in either load range "F" and "G".

I ran Bridgestone Duravis R500HD on my last fiver for 4 summers before trading it in three weeks ago and they still looked like new (estimated 35000km’s on them), fiver was a 10.4K GVWR. My. New unit has 6k axles and base on my previous experience with the Bridgestones I will get a set of either R238’s or R500HD’s at the start of the next seasons. No reason to replace the tires this late in the season just to have them sit all winter, I’ll do it early next season.

Switched to Sailuns on my 2015 13k ORV Glacier Peak. 20k miles little to no wear. Very Happy! Put Sailuns on my 2019 16k Vilano and after 10k mile still very happy! IMHO, cheap tires = expensive repairs!

Well said !!

And - you may/probably "be on the hook" for those expensive repairs!
