I want to replace OE tires (Goodyear marthons) with a quality tire but none are available for a 14 " rim, ( At least in my area). Can I use a 15" rim on my 2008 16' International without any complications?
I have run Michelins on my TV and previous tlr without any problems.

Thanks,

Lynde Kimball

You will have to measure and see if you have in excess of 1/2" of clearance all the way around your current 14" tire to see if the 15" will clear.

Any updates on going from 14 inch rim to a 15 inch on a 16 foot Bambi. I have a 2015 model, 16 ft Bambi and would like to hear comments about going to 15 inch rims, do they work?
Is their an advantage or disadvantage?

I did make the move replacing my 14 inch wheels with 15 inch Michelin (235/75R15) on my 16 foot Bambi. Have not had a road trip yet but all seems to fit quite well.
