I just read this post which is disturbing since I just put down a deposit on the 15BH model. My specs say 15" radial tires and galvanized wheel well. I wonder if that is a replacement tire and recently put onto the newer models because of that problem. The booklet that I got said 13" but a newer leaflet states 15" radial. I am going to ask the dealer about that!

Where did you see the info for 15"? Is it a dealer thing, or Jayco papers? Can you take a pic/scan or give a link? 15" tires would solve all the problems matched with the right axle.

I will try to attach a photo of the sheet. It is an 8 x 11 sheet from Alb any RV which is part of RVOne.com. On the website it still has the 13" wheels listed but this sheet says 15". I have sent an email to the salesman asking him about it but probably not there todayl.

The sheet says The All-New Swift SLX by Jayco"
Light weight and easty to tow
AC & Microwave
Ball bearing drawer glides
galvanized sheel wells
15" upgraded radial tires
2 year Jayco brand warranty

Then it has all three floorplans and the prices.

If this does not work, I could fax it to you tomorrow if you have a fax number.

So the 3200 gvwr is dependent on having 500 pounds of tongue weight which isn't likely to happen in my case

I think etothepii has pretty much established that the tires are 13" based on the 1360lb rating each and the axle is rated 2720 lbs according to the Jayco email

I checked with the dealer and he said "the sheet is incorrect" and the wheels are 13"....so I guess I will cancel my order.

Sorry for misleading you but I believed the written word!!
