Got my vote...

Check your clearances very carefully... you may find the tops of the wheels dont have enough clearance... remember the suspension travels and you dont want a wheel digging into the living area

i will gain an inch in wheel hight going to 16" from 15" but i have two notches to move my leaf springs down which should give me another 1.5-2 inches so it should be fine

My first Eagle a 2005 model was the smallest available at the time sported 16" wheels with E Range tires.

I did the wheel and tire swap to 16" after my first season. I had lots of height clearance and plenty of room between the tires. I have an 09 25.5 rks. My springs are mounted on the lowest hole in the jake plate. It came that way from the factory.

I just ordered a new 2011 Eagle Super Lite 5'er and the dealer offered me an option I was not aware of. This option is NOT currently listed on the Jayco website yet but is valid for sure.

I have a copy of the 2011 Eagle Super Lite Price Sheet and proposal form in front of me which lists all the Eagle Super-Lite 5th wheels and the options available, along with MSRP pricing. It says "Revised Date: December 22, 2010".

What is interesting is that there is an option (#11958) called "Deluxe Package" and includes:

Solid surface kitchen counter-tops
(2) solid surface sink covers
16" Aluminum Rims
and 8 Cu Ft Refrigerator

Price is $1850 MSRP

The option was too pricey for me, and strange that there is no stand-alone separate option for the counter-top upgrade OR the 16" rims.

Take this info for what it's worth...a call to Jayco might be worth it if your looking into 16" wheels and still want to maintain factory warranty.

I'll be that a 16" wheel option along with some choice of tire manufacturers would be very very popular.

I doubt very seriously if any manufacturer would give permission to make a change from what they have already engineered and produced. They simply aren't going to do this for any of us individually. This is the same as an engine manufacturer recommending crankcase oil. They will give you a specification and if you choose to use something else you are on your own. The same with tires/wheels. If you change it, you are the engineering department and the test center.
Good luck whatever you decide to do.
