Tires

What company manufactures the tires that ETI is currently using and what is the maximum speed rating?

ST Trailer tires are rated for a maximum of 65 mph, I believe, as an industry standard. Someone correct me if that's wrong.

That's exactly what I've heard over the years. Yes, there are other tires for much higher speeds, but they're not ST trailer tires.

Beats me, but Tire Speed Rating with Kal Tire gives an explanation of speed ratings.

Chart from Kal Tire site and note none have a rating that low:

That "R" is not the speed rating, it's for Radial.

I looked on another site and it gives the Carlisle 15" ST205-75R-15 an "R" speed rating.
The speed rating, I gather, would be the last letter in the string. ie. Carlisle 15" ST205-75R-15R ( but we don't have that info, other than from a site selling the tire ).

I don't think I'd want to tow a trailer at 106 MPH. (following the Kal Tire chart)

I was reviewing the Kal Tire chart and note that the rating is for a P or passenger tire.
Perhaps an ST tire with the same R rating would have a different speed rating?
One would think it means the same no matter what type of tire.
