17.5 Inch Upgrade

Well my wheels arrived today. As soon as the yard dries up I will install them. I ordered them from Trailer Tires and Wheel. They were packed well and arrived with no damage within a week of ordering. That included clearing customs. The staff at Trailer Tires and Wheel have been excellent to work with and so far I would recommend them. I went with the Hi-Spec Series 3 wheel with the Goodyear G114.

Pictures to follow tomorrow.

The yard finally dried up enough to complete the install. Wheels went on with no problem. Everything fits well and looks great. The wheel on the left is the new one.

What did that cost you for four wheels and tires? Coming from 16" tires, are you gaining height and do you have any concerns with the space between the tires? I'm asking because we have the same model trailer as yours on order. Thanks

Cost without shipping was $2700. There are no clearance issues at all. In fact this setup is almost identical in height and width to the original wheels/tires. I think I am less than 1/2 inch taller and the new Goodyears are narrower than the Tow Max that came with the unit. I went with the Goodyear G114 in a 215/75/R17.5. These tires are rated for 4800lbs.

As I stated in an earlier thread, all I wanted to do was upgrade the rubber to the Goodyear G614 but the stock wheels were only good for 80 psi. So I followed the breadcrumbs and ended up here. Everything purchased through trailertireandwheel.com.

My new problem is that my old shop air compressor can't make enough pressure to top thes new tires off. So off to the store I go......
