Precisely why I won't own trailer tires on a trailer. Even at 65, you're running at 100% of the rated speed. I love my 100+ mph rated LT tires. They give me a safety cushion.

Or you could move to the west coast were you will can easily cruise through 3 states and one province and still have a safety cushion using ST's due to not being able to legally do 65 mph while towing a trailer.

Assuming, of course, that I want to go like a bat out of he double hockey sticks with egg in tow, where do you find an LT tire 205-75-14 in load range D? Either I'm just not finding them on line or am searching in the wrong place. Find lots of STs though...
