I don't even know how many of the "average driving public" evens know how to change a tire.
We watched a local news story at some spot we parked that stated nowadays the average 40 year old man did not know how/where to check the oil or any other fluids & had absolutely no idea how, if it has one or where to put the jack or use the spare if needed.
My FIL was one of those guys, he could build houses all day long, but had absolutely NO mechanical skills. My 2 BILs are those guys in that news article, they don't know how to open the hood.

TRANSEAGLE ST has gone another step with their 15" all steel radial trailer tire by adding a LRG that produces 3520# of load capacity at 110 PSI.

That GY KAMAX T has a "J" speed letter = 62 MPH.

Almost all European designed 17.5" low platform trailer tires with a "J" (18 PLY) rating also have a "J" speed rating letter.

17.5Ē sizes - 70 series

245/70R17.5 LHT 143/141 J (146/144 F) 789 803 248 258 360 2406 270 - - 6,75 7,50

(From GY truck tire data book).
