With lots of help this is what I did.
T03 Sendel aluminum wheels. Purchased from Tredit,the closes to me was Plant City Fl. 888-664-6656. For four wheels,center covers,lug nuts,valve stem AND shipping $517.64
LTX/Ms2 225/75/R16 Michelin drive out $825
Happy with my decision, now I feel comfortable to adventure out without worry.
Those really look good ! You can't go wrong with Michelins.
Getting ready to purchase a new set of the Michelins for my D-Ram. I have a set that I purchased used in 09 and have run them everywhere on the truck. Incredibly smooth and quiet, best tires I have owned. Hate to replace them but they are wore.
When it comes time to replace on the AS, I don't know if I will be putting 16s on my 28'. I don't load it much at all.
If I were to load the fresh water tank, that would be significant weight. Very seldom do we fill it.
I itemized everything we added to the AS when we 'moved' our stuff in.
Heck it isn't that heavy, 122 pounds, give or take five or six pounds? Some of that is stuff that permanently stays in the AS.
I plan to weigh it next time out by scales. Grill, landing platform for steps, bikes, Tiki torches, most of the heavy tools, Cat supplies, stabilizer pads, all that rides in the back of the truck.
Are the two batteries on the Airstream included in empty weight or are they included in 'Gross weight' loaded?
Food is not that heavy. Yeah I think I will weigh it and see how close I come to my calculation.
Have a good one,
