tire size 1994 25ft excella

Is the standard tire size for the 1994 ft excella a 225/75/15 C, or is the 225 series a oversize tire?

I'm sure Andy at Inland RV (a forum member) can help. He has an '800' #.

According to my owner's manual, 225/75/15 C is the original tire size. When it comes to replacing my tires, I will probably go to the Load Range "D". Hope this helps. Jim

Upgrading to a higher load range should not be done on any wheel that has been in service for a period of time.

To do so imposses additional loads on that wheel, which will cause it to split around the circumference.

That information was published by wheel manufacturers some 25 years ago.

If the wheels are low mileage and relatively new, you can take the chance and upgrade.

The safest way is to replace the wheels.

There are a number of horror stories about people that have done exactly what your suggesting.

I will be happy to post a recent photo of just such a thing. The vehicle owner put a higher load range/pressure tire on a wheel, the edge of the wheel separated catastrophically. Stay tuned, I will snap a photo tomorrow at work.
