Current tires read: 20575d14

I just want to be clear that these have to be replaced.

Just to be clear… If your current tires are Coker  Tires and are bias ( not radials), then it would be a good idea to replace them. Google radial trailer tires in your size and make your selection based on reviews. The change is a must if you plan to travel distance. You will be glad you did. Good luck…

Actually these are “Load Star”.

I had thought that if the tire size had an R in it they would be radial tires. This has a D. Thought I had read that once.

Yes, I believe you have bias ply tires. Go with a good set of radials. Not sure of your model but most Retro’s are single axle so go with the best tires. Again, many choices so read the reviews and make an educated purchase.

Looked at your introduction and you said it’s a 2015 177. I would also have the wheel bearings packed and brakes checked. Mine is also a 2015 177se and did that this season also.

Will replace my original 14 inch tires and rims with 15 inch tires and rims.  Purchased a 2018 177SE  installed the lift kit available from any retro dealer.  After installation will chat tire and rim size to carry more weight than the 14 inch.   Less tire rotation and a choice to move to light truck tires.  Light truck tires offer more weight capacity and speed increase .  

Learned about 14 inch Goodyear travel trailer tires from my last trailer.  A Casita with almost identical weight to the retro.   They do not last .

hope this helps.
