These are what I went with: 17.5" 8 Lug Series 07 Black Hi Spec Aluminum Trailer Wheel

Along with Continental Load Range J tires.

Night and day difference - zero sidewall flex and we tow heavy...

Trailer Tire and Wheels was extremely helpful in helping me decide.

Maxed out at my GVWR of 19,000 pounds, my tires carry 2600 pounds each. I see no need to go to anything higher rated than an E rated tire. All my trailer needs is quality tires, not that Chinese crud that's waiting to blow up. I use Michelin XPS Ribs, a commercial truck tire.

Mine are Westlake's but are L rated. Could explain why mine have lasted, although I don't tow anywhere near the 75 mph speed rating. 63 mph guy.

My last westlake blew at 50, on the interstate in traffic escaping from Hurricane Irma.

Mine came the same "E" ply rated which is 10 ply. The "L" rated that Icv800 is referring to is the speed ratting. The 17.5 that I switched to were "L" speed rated which to me is not relevant. It was the 4010 lbs & 14 ply that sold me.

I have towed thousands of miles over the past 4 years and had no problems with my 17.5 Sailun S637 tires. They were the best upgrade I did until I put on disc brakes last year.

Howdy. Several of us are asking about your fireplace install in another thread. Sorry for hijacking the thread...
