Justify new tires? move to trailer tires?

My stock GSA 30X9.5X15 GY Wrangler tires are OK I guess. Would they fit on my 16' utility trailer? I think the trailer has a 205X?X15 on it right now. They look like hell and really need to be replaced. What do you think? How much clearance do I need between the tire and the fender?

Well, depending on what the xx numbers are, but let me put it to you this way. A 205/75/15 is equal to a 27x8" tire. A 30X9.5 would be close to a 245/75/15.

So with those figures, you can see your Jeep tires are close to 3" bigger. They may or may not fit.

They should work just fine on the trailer.
