So, I have a 2007 Keystone Outback 23rs. The tires that are on it are 205/75R14's they are aged and looking worn. I would like to replace them with a better option. I know exactly squat about tires and load ranges ect.... What would be a good option to go with for replacements?
Thanks in advance!

There's nothing better than Goodyear Endurance trailer tires. I bought mine on eBay for way less.

I also would look at the gy endurance

You might think about the 215 size instead of the 205 size as it gives you a bit more weight capacity and isn’t any larger diameter so should fit fine. Though not knowing the weight of your trailer you may not need any additional weight capacity cushion

Dry weight is right at 5,000 and cargo capacity is right at 2,000.

No need to ever mention dry weight as it is a meaningless number. Gross weight, or GVWR, is all that matters. Get tires that will handle your GVWR. In that vein, avoid any and all tires that are Made in China. They have a long history of failure, which WILL cause damage to your trailer. As others have said, go with the GY Endurance, which is made in America. Or go with a truck tire, which I don't think come in a 14.

1. look at the side of the tire and look for numbers like "122/05" that is the week and year the tire was manufactured. Many RVers keep tires for about 5 years and then replace them.
2. Look at the possibility of switching to 15" rims for more tire capacity and stability.
3. I prefer to have the highest rated tire that will fit on my trailer i.e. G rated tires on my 15th. wheel..
4. I have used Good year tires with success and/or Schwab Tires brands. I like Schwab Tire stores because of their warranty and customer service at all the stores on the west coast.

All other specs being the same, a 215 WILL be taller than a 205.
Not saying it won't fit, or that it's a bad idea.... Just that it WILL be taller
