I had a similar issue on my 2002 30' Classic with SO, and after reading all of the associated threads, I went with the following:
4 Tireco Sendel 16 X 6 6-5.5 aluminum rims (same design that As puts on their newer trailers)
4 Stainless Steel Caps
1 Dexter Steel Rim 16 X 6 6-5.5 (spare tire rim)
Total = $648.16 delivered
4 Michelin E rated LTX MS/2's 16" $213.00 each
1 Falken Rocky Mtn (same exact diameter as the Michelin's) for
the spare = $104
Centramatics = full set was $235
Never looked back, even with this added expense, I do not worry about a blowout any more.
