Question Tire and Wheel Replacement

Have a 2010 30' FC, (Pull the FC with a 2014 F350 with 18" wheels)
Can someone explain the pro and cons of 15" vs 16" wheel and tires. I have over 20k on the original 15" set and am looking at new tires. The trailer has performed well, what's the advantage to upgrading to 16".

Lots of information on this. For a starter see

Personally, I've upgraded from 15" ST tires to 16" LTX tires (and wheels, obviously). There are a number of advantages - greater load capacity, high speed rating, and less likelihood of having a blowout (i.e., safer). There is lots of info on this here in the forum under the section on running gear.
