Yes, I agree. The ST205/85R15 would have more capacity than the stock ST205/85R15 because it has taller sidewalls; the ST225/75R15 would have substantially more capacity than stock because it is both wider (by 20 mm) and taller in the sidewall (by 15 mm because that's 75% of 20 mm), assuming the same inflation pressure.

Capacity is not an issue. These tires are larger in diameter than stock, but should still fit in the Escape wheel wells fine, which is why they were not noticed before. One pair are wider than stock, but with no outer fender lip on an Escape and less than 10 mm more width toward the inboard side, I'm not surprised that there's no fit problem.

Has ETI ever even used any other ST tires sizes other than 205/75R/15 (and 205/75R/14 before the change to all wheels being 15") in recent years? This sure seems like purely a mistake by ETI's tire supplier and I bet Reace will want to rectify it. Since all the wheels and tires at ETI are the same size now, I doubt if the guys at ETI would ever have even noticed this.

My mistake, it is a typo on my part. Both tires are R75, however one pair are ST225 and the other pair are ST205, as is the spare.

Paul - that makes it even an easier mistake by someone at ETI's tire supplier to make. But it also means that there is more difference in circumference of the two sides and it's something I would want to remedy.

The ST225 x 15" are used on the 5.0 Classic which hasn't been made for the last two years.

Hmmmmm
Check the date code on the two different tire sizes.

Different Tire Width on Escape 21

All 4 tires should have matched. I'll echo what others have suggested - call Escape.

Just out of curiosity I checked mine. All 4 are ST205/75 R15.

The people that are assembling these trailers are obviously going for speed not quality. And no one is 'consistently' doing quality control monitoring.

Our 19' is listed as a 21' on the Manufacturers Label in the closet. ETI told me to just cross out the 21' and write in 19'. So the person 'installing' the label didn't even notice .... the size of the trailer. So it's no surprise the tire size isn't noticed either.
