abAs long as you're upgrading the rims & tires, consider adding Centramatics. They will dynamically balance your tire/rim/brakes/hub assembly. Absent proper balance, vibration can do all sorts of nasty stuff, such as loosen rivets, open drawers & cupboards.

Last summer I went whole hog - replaced and upgraded my axles, plus Sendel 16" rims and Michelin LTX225/75R16(E) tires (including the spare) & Centramatics. Have put on about 15,000 miles since - rides smoothly and tows like a dream.

I agree. Lucky for me, they were already on my AS when I bought it from the PO.

I meant to post these earlier. Here are a couple of pictures of the repair and the new rims and tires. I hadn't put my Tire Pressure Monitoring sensors back on the tires yet, in these pictures.

Wow! Those look great on there. I am glad Out Of Doors mart was able to get everything repaired for you. We are on the fence about replacing our new 15" trailer tires with upgraded 16" gear. Every time I see these pictures of new wheels and tires I get the urge to upgrade.

Go for it! I did and the peace of mind knowing that you won't have ST-tire failure (with its associated costs) is worth every penny. Better towing, longer tire life and a lot safer with 16" LT-tires.
