The new ones at our dealer were also 13's, standard steel wheels. Most of them are, but for some weird reason a lot of the 2011's had 14's. Maybe they ran out of 13's that week and put 14's on
I honestly don't see anything different about our X17Z suspension wise, their really is no reason you could not go with 14's.

Just curious, what is the actual size?

That's a good question. Here is a link to the spec page for your TT:

There is a picture, but no spec. I would contact Jayco at service@jayco.com. Jayco can tell you exactly how your TT was equipped leaving the factory. It's difficut for dealers to keep up with the specs on all the different brands and models, but a wheel swap should have been easy to match.

All you really need to do is look at the "Tire and loading" label, it will tell what is supposed to be on it.

Good call, Boss Wagon. I had a neighbor that was going to lend me some 15" rims off a farm trailer for testing. After getting the TT home and checking the space, it's not worth a test run. There might (probably would) be room on the top and front, but definetly not the rear.

If I still have the TT 10 years from now, maybe I'll make room with the saws-all.

amabee & OnThe Go,

Thanks for the info. I'll check the load label when I get her out of indoor storage in about 5 weeks! I'm thinking upgrading to the 14" is not a bad idea. Wish I realized that at the time made the deal with the dealer. We probably would have upgrade at that point in time.

As always, thanks for the great help everyone!

What is a Norcold adapter on the axle ? I just purchased a 2013 x17z that has the 13" aluminum rims and tires I want to add the #10 dexter axle riser kit and upgrade to 14" rims and tires.

It's actually a "Norco/BAL" adaptor, Norco is the company that makes the frame. Because of this, the Dexter kit will not work, the axle is not attached to the frame with the standard Dexter mount.

Would like to replace stock tires on x17Z with larger size.

The torflex axles are available in 4 heights, as determined by the angle of the arm when loaded. From 22 degrees up to 45 down.

Changing from zero to 45 gets you about 4". They are $300-400 complete drum to drum.

I'm unfamiliar with the mounting on the trailer mentioned but the axles include side and top mount holes.
