2020 Melbourne tire size

We are currently running 215/85 R16 tires, which need to be replaced. Has anyone gone larger? If so, what size did you go with and are you happy with the results?

We don't have a MH, but keep on mind that a different size will throw off your speedometer and odometer readings.

I am getting ready to replace all six tires on my 2021 Melbourne 24L, as they are five years old. The tread depth is still reasonable, but I won’t take any chances with the age out parameters. I am staying with the OEM ties, Continental Vancontact A/S, LT215/85R16, which I have been very satisfied with over the 23,000 miles. Additionally, I do not use any valve extenders, instead use the Alligator V2B double seal valve cap, which makes inflation checking a breeze
