Jayfeather tire question

Hi Being new to the forum I'm not sure this is the place for this post but here it goes. I have a 2008 Jay feather exp 17c with the original tires st185/80 13. The sidewalls are in poor condition so I will be replacing them . I'm thinking about 14 inch tires if they fit, I think they will. Reason being less rpm's to axle, bearings = less heat ,wear etc with a bonus of a little more ground clearance. Has anyone else done this?

Moved from new members forum. Remember you would need 14" wheels as well as tires to make the switch, and check to see if you will have enough clearance between the tire and the wheel wells with the trailer loaded before upgrading tire sizes. Perhaps an email or call to Jayco with this question would get you a more definitive answer. Include your VIN with your inquiry. Glad to have you aboard!

As stated in another topic here, you need at least 3 in of clearance.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.
