15 inch wheels

I currently have 15-inch aluminum wheels on my AS. I am having the axles replaced at JC and have decided to go to 16-inch wheels. If there is anyone interested in acquiring my five 15-inch wheels with ST225-75R15(E) tires (all current date codes), please let me know. Depending on whether I find a buyer now (my service appointment is July 21 at JC) or later will determine whether I do the wheel upgrade in July or November.

Please PM me if interested.

Would you happen to have a photo of the rims and how many miles are on the tires?

I'll photograph the wheels and post the photos later today.

As for the tires, all of which are ST225-75R15(E): 1 General Tire (0 miles purchased last month as my spare), 2 Towmax (purchased at JC Nov 2013), 1 GYM (purchased at JC July 2013) and 1 (Westlake, purchased October 2011 - had been my spare until last month). Tires are rated Load Range E, max cold pressure rated 80 psi, and I run them at 65 psi.

There are 5 rims, but only 4 hub covers, as these fit into the rim before the wheel is mounted, hence no need for a spare hub cover. Rims and hub covers are aluminum.

I travel about 12-15,000 miles a year with the trailer (TV runs 22,000 miles per year).

The wheels could use a polishing (I know). Here is the photo - all 5 wheels are like this one - in good condition with no damage. Four have the center hub cover, which slips into the center hole before you mount the wheel.

I have a 31' and frequently see wheels for 25's and 27's in the classifieds. How can I tell if those wheels are safe on a 31' from a weight standpoint?

If it's your vintage 31' listed in your profile, and you're buying 15" wheels from a recent wide-body trailer, odds are they have plenty of load-carrying capacity. The wheel's load-carrying capacity should be marked on it, the seller can provide you with that info.
