Sledgehammer: can you give us the rim type, and / or company that you use to get the 16" set up. I am very interested in the upgrade.

Trailertiresandwheels.com is where my wheels came from. They were excellent to deal with and I had the wheels 2 days later.

Picture of new wheels last weekend.

Exactly the same setup as I run, and for the same reasons. My 5th wheel also has a 9,900 lb. max rating, which I never come close to with my dry weight under 6,700 lbs. I don't drink the Maxxis Kool Aid, so I save my money and spend it for other things. Not saying there is anything wrong with the M8008, I've just never seen anything to make me believe they are better and/or worth more money than the Carlisle RH. The N speed rating exceeds any other ST tire rating as well, which is added peace of mind. It is rare that I see more than 65 mph when pulling, so I don't worry about tires anymore. As an added bonus, you can pull into any Discount Tire and they will have them in stock.

Is your 29.5 BHDS raised by having the leaf springs in the lower hole? Or are the leafs in the stock position?

Mine isn't adjustable, only 1 hole. I haven't changed the height any.
