Tire upgrade

I have posted before that we are in the process of buying a eagle ht 29.5bhok. One of the options is 16in tire upgrade. Do I really need it? I have a 2016 Chevy 2500 hd crew cab (gas). Will i have ride clearance and level issues if we don't get it?

TIA

Definitely yes, always get the larger wheel option. Also the second AC unit too.

Mine came with 15" and I had to buy new 16" wheels and tires to get the trailer higher in the rear. The HT's trailers run low.

I assumed Goodyear, since the Endurance series is on the 5th wheels.

You quoted Mopar Earls post about getting the larger 16 wheel option and you said they were American made. Since he said wheel and not tire, I assumed you meant the 16 wheels were American made. I see you were taking about the tires. American made or not I was more curious about the wheel maker. I will be replacing tires this season and had considered getting new 16 wheels and tires as I have the 15 setup now.

We are also ordering the 29.5BHOK and opted for the 16" tires which will help keep the trailer more level.
