Help Me Order My 16 inch Rims

Hey Gang, I'm about to go ahead and upgrade to 16's. Wife and I have decided we're liking the looks of the Sendel T02. I noticed there are two versions of this in 16x6 and I want to make sure I'm ordering the correct one once I find a good price.

Having a hard time searching the forum, but I the specfics I think I need to be aware of are

6 lug, 5.5 bolt pattern, 0mm offset and 4.25 in bore size. Is this correct? Can someone verify for me. Thanks.

6 lug 5.5 chevy bolt pattern is correct. 0mm is correct for vintage trailers but many have played with a inside offset to place the wheels out further, I'm not sure it matters maybe others can chime in on the reasons!? The 4.25 bore size is standard and you will have enough room for your dust cap. I remember reading on the forums that if you have grease buddies you need a larger bore size so the grease buddies fit into beauty wheel cap?!

NOTE: If you go with 16 x 7 you will have far greater selection in tires! since that is the reason why most switch from 15 to 16 rim size, is to use LT tires over Trailer tires.

We have a 25 international with 16 rims and Michelin tires from a Airstream Classic, they look great and i feel more confortable with the Michelin tires rather than the Goodyear's

That's my plan, just need rims because I have 15's now. Shopping for my rims, want to make sure all my numbers match so I can bolt them up.

Am I missing something? Are you saying you need the rims only because you already have 15's?

I have OE 15's in the style of Sendel S20's with Crappyear Marathons.

So I need rims so I can go with 16 inch LT tires. Obviously.

Is that the Amazon seller, I see Shadow Industries, they run Trailer Wheel & Tire Superstore. We offer trailer rims, trailer tires with Free Shipping over $50. and I've been staring at the T06GM now for an hour and think I changed my mind and want these. Hmm.... picking wheels is tough.

Don't know if it matters to you or not, but the T03's have a higher load capacity than the T02 or T06.

16x6
6 on 5.5
4.25 bore
0 offset

I bought mine through the Trailerwheels.com site you linked above and they were great to deal with. Ordered them online on Sunday and they were in my hands Thursday morning. Free shipping. These are the wheels only and do not include lugs, center caps or valve stems. Bought my tires through Tire Rack and had them mounted and balanced locally. Installed them on the trailer myself. Sold my old wheels on Craigslist.

Did anybody call Airstream to see what wheels they put on their EB models? Why not buy exactly the same thing?

Wheels

Just got my new wheels and tires. Wheels came from performance plus tires as suggested by moose tags in an earlier thread. They were $112 ea with free freight. There was a 20 handling charge. Look great. There is a sticker on the hub to use zero offset wheels.

Can you go from 14 inch to 16 inch wheels on a 2006 23 ft Safari? Then go with the Michelins? If so what size Michelins?

Factory uses Sendel 16x6.5 they are chrome with black highlights on the inside of the "spokes" we ordered them on the 2015 30' FC we took delivery on this past fall. Much to our surprise as we thought we would be getting Sendels like we put on our previous 30' AS, all chrome. But it worked out as they almost match the wheels on our Ford F350 Platinum with the black inserts.
