16 Sendel bolt diameter

I am looking to upgrade to 16's on my 2014 30ft bunk. I have read all the forums but nobody talks about bolt pattern.

Stock rims are 15 x 5 on 5 but I can only find Sendel wheels in 16 x 5 on 5.5.

What am I missing? I am assuming they will fit since everyone seems to be going this route.

Help me understand.

You may need to count again...They are a six bolt pattern.

I'm not sure what wheels you're looking at, I upgraded to Sendel T03-66655BM on our 2013 30' bunk.

My new wheel specs are size: 16x6; Bolt Circle: 6/5.5; offset: +0; centerbore: 4.25

I got new wheels in May from Discount Tire for $120 each. Also ordered the Michelins LTX MS/2 tires at same time and had them mounted. They were running several really good rebates at the time, so cost was around $1250 (rims and tires) after all the rebates.

Discount tire mounted tires onto rims. I mounted wheels and tires on trailer myself because I'm silly like that...I easily swapped the center cap from old wheels onto new ones. Sold the old ones on Craigslist in about a day.

Also recommend new lug nuts (stock ones are rubbish) and metal valve stems if you're going to use a TPMS. Ask me how I know!

Sorry more than you asked for...

Best,
Jeff

Sendel bot diameter

Jeff thanks for catching my error and great info. Enjoy your posts on IG.

Pretty much planning on the same but going with the all silver version.

I still am trying to understand how a 5 inch bolt diameter equals a 5.5. This is the engineer in me. 2+2 has to equal 4. I just want to make sure before I purchase everything. We are launching on our FT adventure Oct 19th and I don't have to much room (time) for error.

Thanks again and hope we can cross paths!

Tires?

So if you're upsizing to 16" Sendel wheels, what tire and size are you moving to?

The Sendel T03 wheels have been on my trailer for a year as of just before Labor Day.

Hi Searun,
Saw your post about rims and have to ask, how do you know about metal valve stems? I recently installed TPMS on my rig and one of the tires now has a slow leak. Rims do not have metal stems. Could this be the problem??
Regards,
Norbert Cyr

I am planning on going with T03-66655T & LT225/75R16 Michelin defender LTX M/S.

Directly from my owners manual for eveything other than 25ft

Size/Center Size In Inches 15x6 / 5 (NOT 5.5 or am I reading this wrong?)
Lug Pattern 6

Now I know the manual is incorrect regarding other items like the low point drains.

I guess I should just pull the wheel and measure it.

I don't know if a 30 ft classic is the same as a 30ft flying cloud etc.

The wheels, drums, hubs, bolt pattern would be the same on a 30' Flying Cloud and 30' Classic.

I gave up trying to figure it out and just went with what everyone else used...

Something that I also added when doing the wheels and tires were Centramatic Balancers. There are several threads here that discuss. Hard to tell if they've made a difference. I still popped a couple of rivets until I lowered the tire pressure to 70#. No problems since!

I discovered that I should have gone with metal stems on the side of a washboard dirt road in De Smet, South Dakota. I simultaneously lost the stems on BOTH tires on the port (driver's) side of the trailer.

I upgraded to metal stems at the small garage in town after getting a ride from a guy... Upgraded STBD (passenger) side in Madison, WI at Discount Tire.

The Discount Tire guy that mounted my tires onto my wheels said metal stems weren't required with a TPMS (and my EEZTire brand TPMS doesn't specify in the manual), I learned the hard way. Feel much better now and haven't had any issues since. Discount Tire in Madison, WI swapped out the STBD side stems for free (I already had them).

Thanks everyone for all of the good info and guidance.

I talked to a tech at colonial today and he confirmed that the owners manual is indeed wrong.

Off to purchase!

After listening to Vinnie Lamica in Calif. I am going to get Bridgestone Duelers 235/75/15. It's what he uses on his own AS. Much less expensive then buying wheels and tires.
