What size wheels and tires - Puma Fifth Wheels

Can anyone with a Puma fifth wheel (295BHSS or 295KBH would be perfect) do me two favors. Our 295BHSS arrives in two weeks and I am ordering a couple of things for it.

1. What size wheels and tires (brand and weight rating would be great too) came stock? Were/Are the tires decent?

2. What is the distance between the front and back wheels? This one I want to know because I am ordering the fastway wheels chocks and want to be sure I get the right size.

Thanks!

I had 225/75/15 load range D and I think they are westlake. Dont know about actual weight. I can check tomarrow. I rotated them to my car hauler when my 295 totaled. I thought the were about 2400lb ish.
I think the spacing is about 6-7" between tires. You might look in my old threads or I will try. I had a thread about lifting the trailer to add bigger lt tires.

Just looked on my old thread. I had about 6-7" then. You might ask Iwannacamp, I think they have the 295kbh too.

Thanks! I don't know anything about westlake tires. I have been pretty partial to Maxxis over the last 10 years, and Duro prior to that. I guess we will put miles on them and see how they hold up. I am guessing they must be D class, as this trailer has a GVWR 10600. Of course the way these RV manufacturers are, they may subtract Hitch Weight and say they are in spec...

Yep, as I stated before, Westlake 225/75/15 8ply load range D. Rated at 2540lb at 65psi. And the rim rated at 2600lb.
- u might check your gvwr on your trailer, ours was 11,176 on the gvrw, the advertised dry wt was 8546 lb, and ship was about 8,750 or so.The trailer was also about 34' long overall.

Not exactly the same trailer but have a 2014 Puma 259 rbss.

Mine came with Chinese Akuret M188 ST225/75R15D rated at 2540 lbs. I don't trust them and as soon as I have extra money hope to upgrade to LT tires on a 16" wheel.

I have about 5" between the two tires.

GAWR 4400 LBS.
GVWR 10227 LBS.
Dry weight 7199 lbs.

Don't have a Puma but a heavier Sabre that came with Westlake tires...I've been very pleased with this brand vs any other stock camper tire you usually get.
Going on 2yrs on them and perform/look great...

Specs on ours:

ST235/80R16
Load Range E
3520lbs max load per tire
