LT225/75R16 on a 2011 Jayco33rlds

I posted in another thread my concerns with the ST225/75R15 GoodyearŽ Marathon Radial on our 2011 Jayco33rlds. I received a lot of good information on different ST tires and some suggestions on upgrading to an LT 16 inch tire. I am willing to spend the money on 16 inch wheels to upgrade to a LT225/75R16. I am looking at Firestone Transforce HT 225/75R16. The specs on the Firestone Transforce HT 225/75R16 indicates that the overall diameter is 29.3 inches. The overall diameter on the ST225/75R15 GoodyearŽ Marathon Radial is 28.30. Has anyone with a Jayco33rlds done this upgrade and if so what were the results? I truly appreciate the experienced minds that prowl these forums. Thanks for the help.

I have been strongly considering Maxxis M8008 225/75R15 10ply, Load Range D, 80 PSI Max. I'm not happy with the painted spoke wheels that came on our 2011 33 RLDS. Rust is starting to bleed through on most of them. They don't look real bad now. Another 5 years will certainly do them in.
