Geo Pro wheel help

Hi everyone, I'm looking to upgrade my Geo Pro 16BH wheels and tires. I'm adding the lift spacer for more clearance as well. My question is does anyone know the brand wheel that Rockwood is using on these trailers? I really like the design and can't find them. Really don't want to go through the dealer.
I'm guessing they're a 15x6 wheel used with the offroad package. If anyone can confirm that I'd appreciate it. I'm offshore and don't have access to my unit, and trying to order everything before I get home.

Thanks, Benjy

I have the 19 fbs with the off road pkg and the tires are st235/75r but I don't know wheel size. The warranty for wheels and tires is through Lions Head so you may want to contact them for size.

Perfect thanks TC! Lionshead makes trailer wheels so I'm betting they're the manufacturer.

Looking forward to lifting this trailer. I bought it so I could pull it with my lifted jeep. Got a great deal on it because it didn't have the lift kit that I wanted. Cheaper to buy everything myself and add it rather than find one with it.

Anyone ever looked on the rear of the wheel to see if they're 15x5 or 15x6 ?

The off road tires on my Geo Pro are West Lake. I'll try to dig out my specs later. LionsHead is the distributor I believe.

Thanks, but I have the tire info. I'm trying to find specs on the wheel. My unit came with a 14" wheel, and the offroad pkg comes with a 15". I've been to Lionshead and a few other manufacturers sites trying to find the same wheel and nothing matches up. I "think" it's a 15x6 wheel but want to verify before ordering a replacement. Need to worry about backspacing as well.

Why don't you just contact Forest River for the specs?

I have. They actually just got back to me referring me to contact Lionshead directly. Figured someone here may have looked at the rear of one of the wheels and remembered the info.
For those that don't know, the wheel size is normally stamped on the backside of aluminum wheels. I'm just not home to look, and mine are 14"s.

I'm looking to go with an LT tire and avoid the China bombs. Been there, done it, got the T shirt. You running the KO2s? They're on my short list along with the Kumho MT51.

Amazing. You would think they would be able to plug your model into a computer and see a spreadsheet with all the stuff installed....Oh, that's right, that would be at a company if I was running it.

Ive got a FD 19 with the off road package and I'm a big fan of the KO2's on my TV's. I'm guessing you would use E rate? Any downside to using these tires on a trailer?

There's been arguments about ST vs LT tires since I've started pulling trailers. As far as I'm concerned the LT tires are better as long as properly inflated and rated for the load. The ST tires supposedly have stiffer sidewalls and more bands to handle loads. 99% of ST tires are China made and have terrible problems. They're not tested as much as a LT tire because they're not meant to carry people. Try and find someone who was unhappy after swapping to an LT tire on their camper. And then look at all the unhappy people who wished they had.

The KO2s are 6ply with a max load of 1925 lbs I think. The Kumho MT51 in the same size are 8 ply with a max load of 2335 lbs.

I think they are 15x6. Here is a pic of my Geo Pro 19 BH with the offeoad package.

CaptBenjy, what size tires did you end up putting on? I will be installing the lift kit soon on my G16BH and there's a good deal on some 31.5" Wrangler A/Ts but I'm not sure the trailer can fit that tall of a tire, even after the lift.

I know this is an old thread but any update on wheel width? When I replaced wheels/tires on our utility trailers with pre-mounted stuff I did learn that "wheel width" is tricky to measure with the tire mounted because the official dimension is from the inside point where the bead mounts & not just the widest part, so you measure the widest part & then subtract maybe 1/2" on each side where the wheel rim curls back in to accept the bead (so what looks like 6" may really be 5"). LOL if it's 5" that's another way for Rockwood to cut cost.

What I really want to know...I got an early 2021 16BH & probably was among the last to get Westlake tires before Rockwood started using Goodyear (or so I hear). I have the lift kit and so 235/75R15 tires and it appears there is a lot of clearance. If I want to replace the tires with Goodyear could I replace the wheels at the same and go to 16x6" wheels/tires (obviousy the wheel bolt pattern has to match). Would have to consider all the dimensions affected. Might get a small additional lift with 16" tire choices but need to be careful. I see 2021 Jayco Jayfeather offroad models now with 16" wheels/tires, looks nice.

So...consider all clearance issues including suspension travel?, any axle issues?, if additional lift then tongue weight goes up a little (I guess)?, replace spare also & will that fit up underneath?, what else or just don't do it & only replace Westlake tires with Goodyear?
