Good luck finding 15" LT tires. If you want LT, you better think about putting 16" rims on.

I had already found some, but there are only a few. I thought 16's but I had issues finding 5 on 4.5 in the 16" size. But yes, 16 would be ideal.

Trailer is at the dealer getting the axle flip conversion done for $300.! Picked up new wheels and 225.75.15 Hercules tires. Next will be weight distribution and sway bar set up.

Please refer to my post under "Cherokee--Attn Grey Wolf owners".
By the way, LT tires are not recommended for trailers as there is too much flex in the sidewalls. Use only ST tires. I upgraded to heavier axles and springs and 16 inch Maxxis 10 ply E rated tires and rims.

Axle Flip done on the Grey Wolf 26DBH

Thanks, I will check that out.
These are ST 10 ply and E rated. Maybe you are thinking of a different tire.?

How many inches did you gain by your flip? I think $300 is a great deal!

Yeah, I had 35x 11.5 x 15's on mine... I think his point was trying to find the D rating in the 15's. Not sure, have not looked hard yet. But I thought I had found some Cooper Discovery's in D or E rating.

I have a 2017 grey wolf 29BH. Drug on the first outing on hardly any grade change (flattened my passenge side drag bar).

I'm thinking of doing the axle flip. I actually had several emails with forest river (dealer was zero help). Trailer sits on 14" tires with underslung axles. Clearance is iffy at best in my opinion. I have wheels to put on behind the drag bars for now to help with the dragging issue but I believe the axle flip would solve it perminantly (previous camper was a travel trailer, cherokee bunkhouse, overslung axles with no drag issues whatsoever. what scares me is being that new and having to work on it.

your thoughts/etc are appreciated.
