Since threads about weight distributing hitches often get long and heated, I’ve decided to post my solution here in a blog post where it can reside unscathed. According to the literature that came with my truck, a 2001 Chevrolet 2500HD long bed with an 8.1-liter gas engine, “Weight distributing hitch and sway control required over 7500-lb trailer weight.” My 2012 23D has a dry weight of 4768-lb, a tongue weight of 779-lb and a gvwr of 6000-lb, so by my truck’s design, I am well below the requirements...

Here’s my first project… I’m upgrading my wheels and tires from 14” to 15”. I bought new 15” SenDel S20-56545T wheels and Carlisle Radial Trail HD – ST225/75R15 load range D (2540 at 65psi) and speed rated M (81 MPH). I also bought new McGard lug nuts and found metal bolt in valve stems - Xtra Seal 17-428 at O’Reilly’s, here’s the link: http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...1769&ppt=C0337
