I'll post back in this thread when I get the Rims so everyone can see how they look, and again after they are mounted to the tires and everything is installed with my final costs and impressions.

So far I have spent $650.95

$437.00 for my 4 rims
$213.95 for the Centramatic Wheel Balancers
My Tires installed from Costco 4 Michelin® LTX M/S2 LT225/75R16 - $811.64 - this includes state tax, and installation fees. Florida tax is a bit of a shocker at almost 100$. Ugh.

Also, I my Centramics need to be swapped out. They sent A & B plates and I need ALL A plates.

They're black



I still have to come back and do the brakes. But the Airstream is off the jacks for now.

Sorry about not answering, have had some issues since Mid December and all kinds of tests plus I no longer get emails on thread posts. BUT to answer Bold Adventures question. They are the Sendel wheels like you pictured but with a black painted "shadow" on the inside of the spokes. I would go to storage and take a picture, BUT it's 4 degrees and snowing hard. Can't find a picture on the net, so if you go to Fords website and look up an F350 build your own you will see under wheels just about what the new AS 16' wheels look like

Ha, after posting just saw your pictures, now if I remember correctly those are the wheels from the factory we got on our 2015 30' FC with 16' Michelins.

Big thanks to Switz & Phoenix for their information in helping me to make my decision to move to this size tire. We're very happy with the outcome and the look of the rims.

If you don't include my Centramics I spent $1248.64 on tires and rims. Kick back the $250 I made off the 15's and that's $998.64 to upgrade.

And if you do include the Centric balancers $1212.59

Cheers to everyone upgrading.

With the Dill TPMS installation, one needs to mark the inside of the wheel with the letter of the Dill sender so the correct receiver chip goes into the correct slot for an accurate location on the Dill display.

That was not done for us at CostCo, so we went back and they broke the tires down to determine that necessary piece of information. I then marked the inside of the wheels before putting the tires on the trailer.

Switz,

I recently spoke to Dill and told them my old system was marked, but the new one was not and the inconvenience that the unmarked ones made.

I asked them to add me to the list of (repeat to boot) customers saying what was Dill thinking when somebody approved this change?

Still recommending the product for its features and functions.

Gary

I have received my 16" TO3 rims, improved lug nuts, etc. Discount Tires has set aside two Michelin LTX MS2 LT225/75R 16's for me. Just waiting for the delivery of the Centramatic wheel balancers. Hope to have all installed by this weekend, if the snow and ice let up.

Now, I plan on having a TPMS (sensing BOTH temp and pressure) put on the exterior of the value stem. Felt this would be easier to maintain than the internal device. Have purchased steel valve stems, rubber coated, to deal with the centrifugal force of the sensors.

Am I missing something in this logic on TPMS?
