Forecast for this spring, 3,000 mile roundtrip

I have a 2017 28BHBE. Not including some shorting distance outings, we are planning to go from TX to NY this summer, which is about 3,000 miles roundtrip. I put about 4,000 miles on my original tires last year but want to change them out to a more reliable tire before our trips this year. I am thinking about changing out the steel wheels to a better looking aluminum one.

Any recommendations on wheel/tire combo and where did you get it from?

TIA

My Jayco OEM aluminum rims are rated for 80psi. I upgraded last year to Goodyear Endurance, load range 'E' from Discount Tire.

VERY happy with them... both the tires and Discount Tire.

After 2 of our OE tires failed on the same leg of a trip we purchased G’year G614’s (an LT tire) and have about 20k on them at present. They are an $$$ tire but the Endurance had just appeared on the market and I wasn’t eager to be an “early adopter”. I replaced the OE rims with 110 psi rated ones from HySpec IIRC.
They’ve been trouble free this far.

What size and brand do you have now?

Now would be a good time to go up to 16's if you have the room.
Have you upgraded your suspension any, heavy duty shackles, wet bolts, equalizer, crossmembers?
Just some things to think about for long trips with a trailer.

Thanks all. If I recall correctly, I have 15 inch rainiers. No suspension mods. I have seen the wet bolt kit, not sure about the cross member, etc. what are the benefits? I have been leaning toward max is or gy endurance, but wanted to possibly move up to 16” with the wheel change.

Look at the MORryde website. Performance Crossmembers by MORryde - MORryde Products

This company supplies most of the RV industry with rims. They have tires as well.

Were your OEM tires not Goodyear?

What is the benefit of upgrading to a 16" rim?
