Bigger Tires- Grey Wolf 26dbh

Has anyone upsized from 14 to 15" wheels and tires on this campers. Is there enough clearance? Any rubbing problems?

I put 215/75/14 on my grey wolf for an upgrade. The only 15" you might get under there could be 205/75/15 which would be less capacity then the 14".

I just ordered a set of Hankook RA08 to replace my ST205/75/14; They are one of a couple that mfg. a 14" 8 ply load range D tire; each tire will carry 300# more than original equipt.

KingW, where are you located?

The reason I was considering that option was my local tire dealer told me, today, a 14" tire will not come in a heavier load rating than a C. Apparently, he's full of crap.

Bill, I talked to Don today, he is well aware of problems getting a load range D tire. Mine are being shipped to him to install early next week; Get my phone # from him if you want info; I bought old 5th wheel hitch from you a couple of years ago, remember?

I have upgraded to the 225/75R15 Goodyear Marathons about 2 yr. and 20,000 miles ago on my Greywolf 26RL. No issues whatever.

Bill what you need are Kumho 857 radials available online from tire rack.com; None of the local tire dealers can get them.
