I believe that is a fairly common upgrade for many people.

HI

I did on my WC Sterling 32RL. The 5th does not wallow like it did with the OEM tires. I am also more confident about the tires holding together.

extremebike, what is the distance between you tires? The distance between the center of the axles on my 33RL is 33" With the 235-85-16 tires would decrease the gap between tires to less than 1 inch. Is that about what you have?

Sorry my unit is in storage so I cannot measure it easily. There is about 2.5 to 3 inches between the tires. I went with the diameter measurement from the factory specifications, sorry but that was a few years ago so I don't remember.

The OEM tires were Trail Express, the dealer found two tires with bulges so I changed them all.
