15" Tire or Rim Up-size Potential on 27 Flying Cloud

On trailers with 15 inch rims 27 foot or other, does anyone know what the tallest tire is I can put on it? Has anyone done a ~ 3 inch lift on one and enabled a bigger rim/tire size and if so what size did you get to? Thanks, Shawn

It's fairly common for folks to increase to a 16" rim staying with 225 some doing 235 width and 75 aspect. I haven't seen or heard of anyone doing anything more. What were you thinking about?

You'll probably get more help by posting in the appropriate Flying Cloud forum.

I measure that the 235 80 R 16 will have a minimum clearance of just 3/8 inch which is pretty tight... The 225 80 R 16 will have a tight but comfortable 3/4 inch and the 235 75 R 16 will be 1-1/8 inch. FWIW the 75 aspect will be more stable and corner better.
