As a non-functioning gearhead, where would I go to get this done for me?

Try Orange County Airstream in Westminister. You could go to Fairfield but I don't like those folks. Your mileage may vary....

What is normally used for the center hub cap with the new 15in wheels? Does the 14in cap fit the new 15in wheels, or do you just mount the wheels without a center cap?

Centramatics - $199 for a pair or each?

PKI, I recently purchased a set of Centamatics for my 25FB with 6 bolt hole 15" wheels. Cost was $199 plus $14.95 shipping for a total of $213.95 for a set of 4. I bought from Centramatic directly through their web site. I also called them with a question and they are a pleasure to deal with. Jim

Jim . Thank you very much. Appreciate the pricing. Kind of makes it easier to add to the upgrade list. Pat

We reused the Airstream center hub from the original Airstream wheels on the SenDel wheels for both the Classic and the 23D.

We have 44 psi in the 15" Michelins as that's the suggested number from CanAm we used for the 25FB and the 23D is 1,300 pounds lighter in GVW.

Also, due to a memory misfire in my prior post, the bars on the Hensley are actually the 1,000 pound bars.

On the way home from CanAm with the 23D, I did have to stop at a farm implement store to get a good grease gun for the Hensley. It had started to complain about lubrication for the weight distribution arms.

I carry a grease gun in both trailers so can lube as necessary when on the road.

I ordered 15" Sendel wheels and Nokian cCargo tires in 225-15 for my 2015 Airstream 23 FB. From Discount Tire. Picking them up Wednesday. Size difference is minimal, about .25" larger for the Nokian/15" Sendel setup. Only concern is that the cCargo may be a little stiff.

... actually the name is cLine Cargo, 225/70R15 C 112/110. they are 6 ply rated as is the original equipment GY Marathon. I believe the Michelins are only 4 ply rated. cLine Cargo rated at 2464# vs Marathon's 1870#.

The 14in center caps did not quite fit the new Sendel 15in rim center holes. They were a bit small and required a wrap of tape to make up the void. An easy fix, but worth the time to correct. Pat

Actually, the Nokian cLine Cargo 225/70R15C 112/110 (115N) S Cargo is closer to a Load Range D (LRD) tire. It is a Euro Commercial tire, and as such it has its load expressed with a load index. In this case the load index of 112 equates to 1,120kg (2464lbs).

The "ply ratings" are no longer used. They were outdated in the 70s when radial tires replaced bias ply tires. Although it may make the old crowd feel comfortable, "ply ratings" are not any good way to describe a modern tire's load carrying capacity.

The 15" Michelin tire commonly used is a passenger P type Extra Load (XL) tire.

I think some people write just to see their words in print.

I stand by my (re)printed specifications exactly as written.

Your "amendments" are in fact misinterpretations of almost all current tire manufacturer's stated specifications.

I write to attempt to help other people learn what I've learned here on this forum. First tier tire manufacturers do not use "ply ratings" to express load capacities for radial tires. They use Load Index on P type tires and Load Ranges on LT and ST type tires.

I got the energy together yesterday, (still fighting a cold for over a month) to get some real exercise and setup my scales to weigh the camping ready 23D with all of the mods except the refrigerator that will add about 15 pounds directly above the street front tire.

.........928

1,280.........1,246 - total on axle 2,526

1,376.........1,233 - total on axle 2,609

With all the electronics installed for the solar system under the street side dinette and sofa, I expected the street side to be heavier. The street side rear will be the heaviest loaded tire sine the black tank is on the left rear of the trailer.
