Tire size increase

I have a 2015 2703ws with 14" tires which does not give me many options on going to a high speed rating or ply. Has anyone replaced their 14" rims with 15's and successfully used 15" tires on the 2703?

Yep, you need to go up in size and load capacity. Problem is, FR probably wont give you a recommendation. Without it you will void a lot of warranty coverage. I'd try to stay with the Original tires for most of the trailer warranty period.

Even if you go to 15'' wheels, your options for tires is very restricted as I have found out. Only when you get to 16" does the field open up where you can get away from the Chinese trash.
Maxxis is made in Thailand and that is a 15". Don't know what's available in 14", but my guess is there is less available than 15".
I'm not sure FR or anyone else would even notice if you moved up....unless YOU TELL THEM. My experience with FR's warranty was not good and it was all done online. They would have used it as an excuse to void the work they did on my unit even though nothing had anything to do with the wheel/tire size. I went from LRDs to LREs and I'm still having blowouts. Go figure!

You may be able to increase the diameter but you need to know the overall diameter of your existing tire. Measure the distance between your front axle and rear axle (distance between the 2 tires. You need to know the O.D. of the new tire you want to put on.
The difference in the diameter will reduce the space between the tires by that amount.
If you pm me I have all kinds on dimension info.
