Outside dimensions of a tandem wheel

As mentioned, I just purchased a 2018 FC 25 RT.

My question is, what is the outside dimension of both tires?

The tire on a 2018 is likely to be similar to previous year, but it is ST225/75R15.

I'm trying to get a wheel cover that covers both wheels rather than individual wheels.

Wouldn't it be easier to measure your actual AS after you get it, instead of everyone speculating about unknown things?



Among other unknowns, what parts of the suspension and braking systems might conflict with a tire cover which will span both wheels on each side?

Great choice of trailer by the way. We had a 25' back in the 90's, with a rear corner bed. The twin floor plan would make more sense for us now.

Congratulations on the move up!

Peter

Peter,

You've seen a few of my posts. I don't easy ��.

I wanted to buy all the things prior to arrival.

I don't need exact measurements, just measure the OD of your tandem to get me an idea what it is. I understand it will little more or less.

I just checked my 25' Safari. It measures ~60" (~28 1/4" tire + 4 1/2" space + ~28 1/4" tire)

add edit: I know that the space between the tires can vary between Airstream models. I bought aluminum tire chocks that would not fit the space between the tires on one trailer but would fit another, both had two axles. My Safari had the larger space.

IF you want to go all out you can purchase some of the same Sunbrella material as your awning and have a boat canvas shop make covers. You could get them fitted for the wheels or as I have seen on others made with dome fasteners to snap on over top of the wheel well.

Hence the wisdom of waiting for the arrival of the new 2018 25' model, in order to measure things up, for such a minor add-on accessory IMO.

Patience . . .
