The Riverstone comes standard with the Goodyear H rated tires. Could you put the 17.5 on the Cedar Creek?

Everything that I've read says if it has 16" tires now, the 17.5" are just bolt off/bolt on solutions. And, that's what it was for my Sabre (I know it's not a Cedar Creek- but same concept).

I don't understand bolt on/bolt off

Once this was replaced in Aug, we left on a 5,000 mile trip out west. The tires have preformed flawlessly, I checked them every day and only had to re-inflated them when we where at 6,000 FT. I did have to lower the air pressure again when we returned to 600 FT again in Missouri. As of right now I have no intention of replacing them until they need to be replaced. I will than research what tire I want to install then. I may go with 17.5 inch tires and rims when the time comes.
Are you sure about the 17" Tires? Seems odd size for a RV! Youroo!!

11 year CC owner. OE tires were LT 235 85R16. Lasted me 7 years. Installed same size Michelins and am completely happy. If you have 7K axles any 3042 load rated LT tire will be fine. If you have 8K axles wisest choice would be 17.5 tires and wheels with load ranges over 4000 pounds per tire.

I disagree. On 7,000 lbs. axles, a 3,042 tire will easily be overloaded.

Sorry. You basically take the whole 16" rim/tire assembly and replace it with the 17.5" rim/tire assembly. The bolt pattern is the same. Though, you may need different lug nuts.

It's so simple, I could do it. (But didn't! as I was having work done anyway.)

Ok, I see what you mean. I looked at what someone was saying about the 17.5 in tires and I'll probably do that one day. Not no time soon, the 17.5 could carry more weight, 4805lbs per tire. If I was going to get a bigger Cedar Creek I would definitely look at the 17.5 H rated tires. DW and I both like the 36CKTS and one day I'll order one, I'll just get the 17.5 from someone else and sell the O/E tires. Who knows by then they may come as a option.

"Marabombs" is correct name for these. Previous TT I owned blew 3 of these and I actually chose 2 of these to replace 'baked and cracking' original China bombs on the sun exposed side of my Cedar Creek 5th wheel
Boom they went: 1 w/ 6,000 miles/ @ 1 year, and 2nd went Kapow at 8,000miles 2 months later.
Replaced w/ Heartland E rated RV(?) tires from Discount Tire dealer in Tyler I limped to w/ a chinabomb spare. Replaced 2 + the spare. Fingers crossed
