Trailer’s GVWR is 4440lb
What pressure would you run?
The correct inflation pressure for the original equipment tires is found on the vehicle certification label, tire and loading placard and in the vehicle owner's manual.
RV trailer tires carry the weight of the combined GAWR loads, hopefully with some load capacity reserves.
Using your tire picture I believe the tire size to be ST205/75R14 with a LRD. You need to immediately contact the vehicle manufacturer and provide them with the picture. That whole batch of tires are very unsafe and need to be recalled. The reason is obvious. Other people like you may read the sidewall information and inflate those tires to a cold 75 PSI. (10 PSI over maximum permissible inflation pressures for that tire).
You will get new tires at no cost to you when the recall is activated. The vehicle manufacturer can and probably will take immediate action. If they don't, send the picture to NHTSA. They will force the vehicle manufacturer to take immediate action.
