i replaced mine over the winter 245/75/16 radials load range E i used take offs from doing tire upgrades to the gmc trucks i sell. they pull real nice. if that is the size you can use look around because the tire upgrade is rather common on gm trucks so you might find them reasonable.

Use trailer tires not truck tires. I use Goodyear Marathon radial 215-75-15. $70/tire.

Goodyear Wrangler HT 235/85-16's Load Range E. These are original equipment on my integrity trailer.
I'm not sure if Marathons(specifically for trailers) are available for these 8 lug axles, which I am assuming you have with the 16" rim size.
