16 inch wheels

I have a 2014 27.5 ULSBS WITH STANDARD 15 inch 6 lug wheels (E) rated currently. Looking to put 16 inch wheels on. Has anyone ever done this and if so did you have any trouble?

On our last 5er I went from 15" wheels\tires to 16" wheels\LT Tires. I had enough clearance all the way around so there were no issues for me.

I upgraded from 15s to 16-Es on my last fiver. Fit fine but still blew out all four original trail express tires over a 2 year period.
