Ooops -for some reason (probably operator error) the computer did not post the formula in the same way I typed it in. So I'll try again.

235 X .80 X 2 = 376. 376 divided by 25.4 = 14.80 14.80 + 16 = 30.8 inches tire diameter.

Computer would not let me enter calculations using fractional notation, so this will have to do.

I know it's not the exact same trailer, but our X17Z came with 14's even though most come with 13's. I have no idea why, but their is plenty of clearance.

That is good to know. I would prefer having tires with a higher load capacity on my Z. I have Carlisle Radials on it now.

For what its worth Doug, I couldnt find anything local for a direct replacement 13" D rated tire. I ordered the same 13" Kenda Loadstars from e-trailer you stated above and very happy so far with them. I talked to my local Jayco dealer about going up in size (for more options) before ordering them but due to the minimal wheelwell clearance, low riding of the 165s and torsion flex needed on a weighted camper I kept the same 13" size as they strongly suggested.

Thanks for the feedback on the Kenda Loadstars. I think I'll just go with those too.

Best regards,
Doug
