Mo's wheels....

What size do you think Mo's wheels are? Standard 6x5.5 pattern, "0" offset, perhaps.. but what 'width'? I have not seen posts including width of purchased wheels.

"Mo" I should mention is 1999 Excella 1000, 34'... triple axle..

I'm strongly considering upgrade to 16" ... to increase tire choices.. primarily so tires are more readily 'available' when 'on the road'...

Also, with the triple axle, should steel wheels be utilized instead of the aluminum which I have heard have more possible failures/cracking?

Wheel specs for typical 16-inch replacement wheel (e.g., Sendel T02, T03, etc.):

Wheel size: 16x6 (i.e., 16 inches in diameter, 6 inches wide)
Bolt Circle: 6x139.7 (same as 6x5.5)
Offset: 0 (zero)
Center Bore: 4.25 inches
Load Rating: 3,200 pounds

I am unaware of 16-inch, aluminum wheel failures. However, if there have been any, I'm sure others will post details here.

That's not nearly the problem with a triple axle as it is with a tandem or single axle trailer. The difficulty is normally finding a 15" tire that has more then 1985lbs of load rating. For a tandem axle trailer like mine with a GVWR of 8600lbs 1985lbX4 only gives a total of 7940lb load rating which is not good. With my parents triple axle with a GVWR of 8800lbs 1985lbX6 gives a total of 11,910lb load rating which is more then some people want.
