i have a few places around here that have them... but you can tell it's for farm use stuff... and they are taller, so i'm sure that is out.. i'll just settle for a good maxxis ST tire for it when i do the wheel changeover...


still sweating the diameter... all of my plans this weekend dashed as i smack my chin on the boat and have to go in for stitches on friday...

ok... i have a question...

with a dual torsion axle setup as we have on the 19H... why the need for a minimum of 3" between the tires? i can understand this on a standard tandem setup with a shared shackle, but is this necessary on dual torsion axle setups?

it looks like a 14" wheel and tire combo would work, but i might be at 2 1/2" or so between the tires...

see above... it looks like i'll be pushing inside 3" between the tires... but still not sure if it matters with our axle style... i'll be talking to a trailer guy here in a few days or next week, and i'll have more info....

seeing how these are not spring and shackle setups, i don't see why you would need to keep more than 3" between the tires... there is more than enough clearance in the wheel well for the slighty larger 14" wheel and tire combo...

I'm going to lurk here, because come the spring, I think I am going to try to go to 14 inch tires.

I did this mod on my RV and have had zero issues. Better ride, more load rating on the tires not to mention the cool aluminum rims I put on at the same time. Those wanting to make the switch should just go for it.

I did this on my 226, I use 14" Triangle radials and have towed over 10.000 miles with no problems at all...Clearance was not a problem..

Wayne - How much additional load rating did you get with changing out the tires? Were able to fit the new 14" spare in the front tongue tire holder? We're considering this mod also and have the X17Z

thanks,
Dawn

Which brand tire did you buy?
The rims look very nice. I don't know if I want to spend the extra $$$ for the aluminum rims, but they sure do jazz up the camper.
