Depends on the free space you have above the tires to the wheel well and the gap you have in front/back. I went from 15's to 16's. Not sure if you will find 16's with your bolt pattern, but it's sure worth a shot.

TB: "Speaking of shelters...we built a "Bambi Port" for our 19'..." I like what you did for your Bambi-very clever. Two years ago I bought a 12 x 20 wooden shed that had been built about 20 years ago and was sort of sliding down into a pit out in the woods near here. We winched it up and out and onto a flatbed trailer and hauled it to my house. Refurbished the entire structure top to bottom, windows, doors, shingles, frame, floors, you know the drill. (ended up costing about what a new one would have cost, not to mention the hours and hours I spent on it). Since I make a practice of NOT learning from the past, I think I'm going to build a roof behind the shed for the Safari Sport, using 4 x 4 posts (10 feet high), 2x6 joists, 2x4 purloins, and standard steel roofing. A two-weekend project that will take me two months cause me to cuss a lot and inspire my wife to take several solo trips to visit friends in distant communities. By the way, INSIDE the shed is a 1937 Buick that I've been restoring for TWO years, and I had to relocate my 1951 Mercury cross town to my sweet 82 year old Mom's while I figure out what to do with the Safari Sport.
