Good move. I drive a 2016 2500 duramax with factory 20 wheels and the Michelin tires are a great choice.

While it will vary from manufacturer, the 20's and the 18's are essentially the same diameter

Umm...
Wouldn't it be different for the various years & models?

I have a new 30' Serenity and 2007 Dodge 2500 with a 4" lift and 35" tires. I did install a new 2.5" hitch in order to increase the tongue weight. I had problems finding a long hitch bar. I contacted, Sean at Propride and he help me with a complete 3p system. Both the truck and trailer tow level, with minimal tension on the spring bars.

Actually a great idea with how low the stock Airstreams ride. Absolutely no handling impacts from my experience. Dragging the tail hasn't been a problem since.

Lots of other unexpected benefits. From dumping the black tank, easier to reach, and height advantage for flowing to farther hookups. To easier access to all exterior storage compartments and not having to stoop down to access. Win win for a larger taller truck.
