After experiencing a GYM blowout this past May, in the course of the repair at JC I had them change my wheels to the 16" ones with Michelin LTX 225/75R16(E) tires. We just got back from a 1-week 1,000 mile trip. As part of this upgrade we also installed with the Centramatics (both on the AS and the TV). The ride was smooth and the tires ran cool at 60mph - previously, with 15" ST tires, the tires ran warm, mainly because ST tires are speed-rated. See Centramatic Wheel Balancer, Tire Balancers for DFW Trucks

I should add that we tow about 15,000 miles per year.

Considering Eddie Bauer Wheel Upgrade, but would like opinions.

Just a easy tire and wheel swap.The center caps even interchange.TPS is a piece of mind option as a blowout on a Airstream does some damage.A lot of people install Centramatic wheel balance ra to compensate for unbalanced running gear from the factory.Both are popular options for Airstreams but tire and wheel upgrade is #1.You will find as time goes by that there are quite a few more upgrades to do.It would be nice to drive away all done but that is another story .....
