I had to buy 16" wheels as Michelin did not have the tire that I wanted in 15 inches......worth the expense but I loved the moon wheel covers I had for them.

Thanks for the update. That really shows how the single-axle trailers put a big load on the tires. My dual axle 25FB was at 5960 pounds on the axles last time I weighed it.
