I have new Artic Fox 29-5T on order from a dealer in Arizona that will come with 16" Aluminum Wheels with ST235/80R16 E rated Goodyear tires. I want to run GY 614 LT tires that are G rated. I am figuring the wheels that come on the trailer will not be rated high enough to carry this tire so I will have to replace both wheel and tires. Being that I live in East Texas, I will have to get them ordered and shipped to the dealer so that he can install them before I take delivery.

Can anyone advise me as to the different brands of Aluminum Wheels that are available and your opinion of the qualities. Also where I can buy them. I have never had to buy alum. wheels before, so need a little help. I know Alcoa makes them but am not aware of any other brands. All I do know is that they need to be 8 hole and 6.5 bolt pattern. I am trying to find out now if they will be 1/2 or 9/16 lugs.

Any help or info you guys can help me with will be appreciated.

Check with the manufacturer.. IF the G rated tires were an option at time of the order , the rims may already be rated to hold the 110 psi. Alot of the manufacturers will only stock the heavier duty wheel so when they upgrade the tires they do not have to stock a whole differenty inventory...

I would try to change the order so the new unit comes with the tires you want. Makes no sense to me to pay for tires and wheels and then pay again upon delivery. Has to be cheaper to order with what you want.

Personally I would contact Northwood Mfg directly and ask them if there was any way they could/would install 17.5 inch tires/wheels under that fiver. Going to GY G614's is IMHO going to bite you in the end. You will then be stuck with a single tire and tire source. Not a smart move in my way of thinking.

The wheels will be fine because you won't need anymore than 80psi to properly inflate the G tires for your load. Use the inflation charts, all will be fine.

Some will tell you you have to run the max air on the G tires 110# that is a bunch of Barbra Streisand!

Call GY Tech support they will tell you the same thing.

trailertiresandwheels.com is a great place to buy tires and wheels. They will sell tires and wheels separately or mounted and properly balanced. Also the tires will be fresh! He can tell you the mfg date. Ask for scott.

Wow that floor plan is exactly like ours and the GVWR is about the same. I was kind of surprised at the weight.
Like Don suggested, I would also look into the 17.5 wheels and tires. Lots of options as far as rubber where the 16" you have basically one brand to choose from.
Enjoy the new camper!

I thought the tires now had to be rated for the full GVWR... I guess not

http://www.tredittire.com/Default.aspx supplies a lot of wheels and tires to trailer manufacturers. In fact, on my new axles, I got my wheels from them. I too, run G614s and the wheels I got from them are rated at 3750 lbs just like the tires. Here is a pic of the wheels
They also carry 17.5 wheels and tires for trailers. Many around here have bought them from Tredit. 6k axles have 6 lugs with 1/2" studs, 7k axles have 8 lugs with 9/16" studs and 8k axles have 8 lugs with 5/8" studs.
