Hi all,

If I go to LT235/85R16 from LT225/75R16 what differences might I expect in handling?

The new tires will be installed on a 28'5" Class C on E-450 chassis with V-10. It weighs in at 14,000 lbs fully loaded with two people.

What load range are the proposed tires. Are they the same as the old ones?

Hi Glenn,

They are a higher load range by about 300 lb per tire.

Make sure the clearance between the rear duels is not too close with a change in tire size. If there is no space, or not enough space you could have those two tires "kiss" and that causes side wall failures or blow outs.

Hi weighit,

Can a spacer be added if need be?
