Looks nice! I run load range D tires in the same size on one of my trailers, too. No worrying about if they are overloaded.

If it were me, I think I'd trim down the bolts holding the coupler onto the tongue. I can feel my shins bleed just looking at them.

Two other small things I noticed - sorry if I'm nitpicking.

You have rubber valve stems in the rims. They're only rated for 60 psi, so if you want to run the tire pressure higher than that you'll need to replace them with metal bolt-in style stems. I used them on mine and they are easy to install.

If it were me, I'd flip your safety chain hooks over where they attach to the receiver. Now, they are bouncing against the safety latches but if you hook them from the bottom up rather than the top down they will ride on the closed side of the hook and be less likely to pop off if the latch were to fail.

What are you looking for as far as different sides? Solid, lower than you have now, or something else?
