    I'm responsible for maintaining the family fleet of vehicles which now is about 8. I'm buying a couple sets of tires every year it seems. The website I buy my tires from is called tiresize.com. What I like about it is that you can compare your tire size to other tire sizes so that you can select larger(or smaller) tires for your next purchase. It compares the tires dimensionally so you can see what the differences will be. I'm not necessarily advocating for increasing your tire size but it is nice to have options. The other feature is once you determine a size you get a list of suppliers that can provide that size and a price quote. I've purchased 5 sets using this web site and have never paid shipping or sales tax.

    I use a tire size calculator, which allows you to select current/stock tire rim size and plug in a new tire size/rim size and you can see the increase or decrease rpm and mph differences.. Came in very handy while shopping for snow tires for vehicles... down size the rim up size the tire and vice versa ..

    For the trailer consider the load rating it is very important.
