Many large commercial trucks have three axels. They would buy two sets of three. Duel axle would buy two sets of two.

M.hony - switched from Michelin to TransForce on vans & PU few years ago, & very satisfied. Have new Michelins on AS & wouldn't hesitate to use Transforce....reason Michelin on trailer now is lots of folks believe they are Rolls-Royce of tires and this trailer will be up for sale shortly....LOL, just my version of a marketing strategy.

Look under bus/RV.
The first one is the 200-221_Special for 6lug Airstream trailers.
The only real difference I see is black powder coat and a smaller diameter compared to the Jeep 300-356 which would also work but is silver/gray or white and slightly larger diameter.

The last piece of the puzzle-
Time to get busy mounting, balancing, and installing.

I share your excitement! Everything what you are doing right now was the biggest and greatest improvement I did to my 93 34" Limited trailer. The Tire Monitoring system even alerted me of a nail in one of tires, just as I was pulling out of the driveway.
Congrats!

Yes, I have had visits from the brown truck man (UPS), the white truck with purple and green lettering (FedEx Ground), the white truck with the red and blue lettering (FedEx), and the USPS. I also visited a local tire store- Southern Tire Mart here in town.
The wheels were ordered on Amazon from ecustomhitch.com.
I just kept looking till I found someone with them in stock at about $100 each.
I hope to mount and balance the tires in the morning and put them on the trailer tomorrow afternoon- just in time for Labor Day camping trip.
I hope my center caps fit...

You are looking at the motorcycle version like I have installed on my two Gold Wings - two on the front wheel and one on the rear.

Standard vehicles use four, but may have different configurations on the front wheel from the rear wheels depending on the vehicle. Or, like on the 16" SenDel T03-66655T wheels many are installing along with the 16" Michelin LT225/75R16/E LTX M/S2 tires (the same items that Airstream installs on the 31' Classics and used to install on the Eddie Bauer models and sells at the service center in Ohio) all four wheels use the Centramatic 300-356 all "A" plates for $199 plus UPS at about $15.

Actually the center cap from the factory 14" wheel fits into the SenDel 15" wheel with the five bolt lugnut pattern I attached to the 23D with 15" Michelin LTX (P) 235/75R15 XL tires and the factory 15" wheel center cap fits into the 16" SenDel wheels. I think all three sizes have the same size center hole for the wheel cap, but the detailed specification pages at SenDel were removed.

I was considering Centramatic balancers for my Harley until a close call yesterday.
The bike is for sale.
It will not leave the shed until the new owner rides it away.
I ain't gettin' back on that thing!
The funds from the sale of the bike will finance an Airstream shelter and a fence around my place.
Some of the big over the road trucks seem to have 3 Centramatic balancers- 1 each for the steer wheels and 1? for the drive wheels? I don't get it-

Installing Dill TPMS sensors won't be a big deal. They are labeled A, B, C, and D. A is LF. B is RF, and so on and so forth. The key is to write A, B, C, and D on the wheels with a Sharpie so when I get home to the trailer I know which is which.
