Look at the top of the tounge. The VIN should be stamped into the metal.

ok, i know what's going on now. the wheels are indeed 15 inch outside diameter, but are for 14 inch tires. That gives you a 1 inch bead to seal the tire. why don't they just give the diameter that the wheel fits instead of outside diameter in the trailer specs?

The trailer specs SHOULD give the tire size, ie 15" tires when giving the wheel specs. Otherwise utter confusion would rule.........................

Here is the data tag on mine:



And here is the sticker on one of the wheels:



And the tire:



The weight rating of the wheel matches the tire rating exactly.

The tires are rated to 1760 lbs, but the wheels I could not find anything on them. I can see where there used to be a label, but there is nothing but the glue left.

If your tires are 14 inch, then your rims are 14 inch.

Regardless the tire/wheel diameter, the rating of 1760 may be a tad low for a GVWR of 7500 lbs.

I too think there was a switcheroo sometime.

Look on the other side of the tire. Many leave some blanks on one side.

no switch

This is the original sticker I found:



I found this one today:



and here is the tire:



It appears to be the correct tire, although the 1760 does appear to be a little low as compared to what '22FB2010Tim' has.

The online spec's are just wrong. Confusion reigns.

Thanks guys for the replies. I appreciate it.

Yes that shows that your trailer came through with 14" tires originally. No switcharoos, no hocus pocus, no monkey business. Apparently they upgraded to 15" tires soon after that year. There are even some large Jayfeather models with 13" tires on them from previous years. But they have a much smaller CCC, hence the term liteweight.

Interestingly enough and to add more confusion to the recipe, Tim`s trailer has a 6000 lb GVWR, 7000 lb rated axles and 15" tires which gives him a larger margin of cushion to work with.

all of this information should be on existing tires and there's a sticker on the drivers side at the front that will show information. you can also contact support for tire specs.
