So what wheels has everyone been switching to when you go to a 16" wheel from a 15" I'm just not sure on what wheel to switch to

The one on the right is the new 16" and the one on the left is the old 15"

Center caps were extra but not expensive. I kept my Dexter easy torque nuts. Put Bridgestone Duravis 250s on her. Can't remember the size off hand but they are about two inches taller raising the fiver an inch or so.

Hi. I'm new to the forum and thought I'd share what I did when we purchased our Jayco.

My 06 Chevy Duramax was too tall for the Super Lite (bed rail clearance and being level) so I had the axles flipped. I went from 15 to 16 tires and rims. For tires I used Maxxis 235-80-16's and this rim from Discount Tires (Americas Tires) MB 72 - I hope this link comes through. If not please tell me how to include a link.

Getting the unit level was a PITA but finally got it right and it tows/tracks real nice with plenty of clearance for some of the dirt roads and hilly areas we camp in. Take care.

did you have a lift kit on your truck?
We pull with a GMC and have a Jayco Eagle Super Lite 31.5 BHDS and it doesn't look like we will need to flip the axles.

No. I put 265/75 16's tires on which are a tad taller + truck is 4x4. I had to add another leaf in the rear as my last 5er (Sundance) sprung my springs going over railroad crossing. The pin weight was around 2500# (too heavy). That made the rear an inch or so higher.

I moved the jake plates all over the place as well as the pin box and finally flipped the axles. My neighbor bought a new Ford and his bed rails are even higher than mine.
