15" Wheels

After reading this thread, I am confident that 15 inch is OK for my 1978 25 ft Tradewind at 4975 lbs empty. My question is, of all the people who changed from 15 to 16's there must be piles of 15 inch slotted aluminum wheels in garages all over the country. I would love to replace my steel rims with some original circa 1978 Alcoa wheels. Anyone have a set to sell?

Look in the Classifieds. I've seen lots of sets come up for sale but they don't last long.

Which Dill TPMS sender unit for SenDel T03-66655T wheels

I will be ordering four of the SenDel T03-66655T wheels (and either one S62-66655TG galvanized steel wheel or one S62-66655T white painted steel wheel for the spare) as optionally factory installed on the Eddie Bauer models and available for installation at the factory on existing trailers.

The Dill TPMS website has two different diameter stems for their pressure/temperature senders:

the smaller diameter is 0.453"

the larger diameter is 0.625"

Has anyone installed the Dill TPMS system on the SenDel wheels and which valve stem diameter did you utilize?

Did you order the four or the six sender system (so one could be installed in the spare and have a spare sender on hand)? Since my truck has the Dodge factory installed TPMS system, I will not order Dill TPMS senders for it.

With the change over to the 16's, what tires are people putting on the 15's since the GYM's are a no no?
