etrailers is a great online website. They have a FAQ page as well as some well-trained customer service people. They give several options in each tire size. For instance, if you decide to go with a larger than stock tire, you’ll need to know the height of both the old and new size to make sure you have adequate fender clearance. They also cary a selection of bias and radial ply tires. There is a big difference in speed ratings, also a consideration.
