Larger wheels and tires

We just bought a 2012 28BH and it needs new tires. After looking at dozens of posts about tire brands I'm thinking of going to 15" wheels. I'm wondering if anyone has done this and if so what size tires did you go to, thanks.

Maker, I too got tired of blowing out tires so after two flats I upgraded to E rated tires. I went to discount tire, told them I want 15 in rims to handle E rated trailer tires. Got the ol white 5 spoke rims and 70 psi E rated tires x 5. I don't remember the brand of tire, its what they had, and I've put about 3k miles and I don't worry anymore. Hurt the wallet but its better than damaging my camper. I recomend it.

Bear in mind that if you increase the outside diameter of your tires, you will reduce the effectiveness of the trailer brakes because the length of the "moment arm" is now longer. You could likely increase the rim size and find a tire size that resulted in the same outside diameter - what the tire shops call up-sizing, and it shouldn't change the braking.

Our 2014 Cherokee came with tires I've never heard of and only got 2 hits on Google. I replaced them 6 weeks later with E-rated Maxxis tires and moved their loading from 97% to 80% of rated max capacity.
