Tire size

Looking at getting new tires for my 25rr, does anyone have any thoughts on going from 205's to I think 215's? Or should I leave the size stock?

So the trailer will be approx. 5/16" higher
If it is a tandem axle the clearance between the tires will by decreased by just over 9/16"

I just went from 205's to 215's and mounted them on our Grey Wolf yesterday. On ours the closest point of contact was the wheel well and it was over 1 inch away.

Just check your clearances, being the very small increase in tire size you will more than likely be OK with the 215's. But just run your hand around the inside of the tire just to make sure that there isn't anything sticking out that you can't see.
