my 2013 13ft patriot deluxe came with 15 inch wheels. some of the older casitas came with 14 inch. you'll need to make sure, depending on the model year, that you have enough wheel well clearance if you want 15 inch wheels. good luck...............

I believe some Casitas originally came with 14" wheels and tires and some came with 15" wheels and tires.  My 2009 17SD came with ST225/75R-15" GYM and I recently upgraded to LT235/15R-15" Pirelli Scorpion ATR with no problems.  I do have the factory high lift axle.  The LT tires have a higher speed rating and double the time/life span compared to the ST tires.  I am extremely satisfied with the LT tires as they track well and the Casita seems to ride much smoother than it did previously.  I also bought new 15"x6" aluminum rims to dress up the appearance.

your profile indicates you have a 1992 model , it is doubtful you will be able to put on 15" tires unless the original owner added a high lift axle. If it is the original axel you maybe close to needing to replace it at 24 years old. If that is the case, I'd replace it with a high lift and get a set of 15" tiresl


Happy Trails!

We just purchased a 2007 17SD in July 2016. No high lift axle. ST205/75-14 tires. I have tried to find new tires with both load range D AND M speed rating (81 mph max). No luck. Does anyone run with ST215/75-14s without the high lift axle?
Thanks.
