I am ready to bite the bullet and buy new wheels and tires for my 2008 17 FD that has been setting idle for over a year after a Kumho blowout.
I have concluded that the new Goodyear Endurance looks very good (new design, high load capacity and high speed rating).
First, I have a question about the tires. It costs only about $5 for each of the three tires to go up from the 205/75 D tires, to the 225/75 tires, so that I am thinking of doing that.
My question, is wether there any downside or problem with doing that (225 instead of 205). It only amounts to less than half an inch wider and taller than the 205s, but maybe the 225s are built a little more strongly to allow them to be load range E???
Please let me know if I am missing any problem.
As for the wheels, I know nothing about them, but I do think I know that I need to buy the 15" x 6 wide 5 on 4-1/2 wheels. I do not need any fancy alloy wheels, so I was looking at the Dexter wheels in that size on E-Trailer for about $40 each.
Can anyone tell me of a better choice in terms of price and quality? Also, does the fact that there is no mention of offset mean that those wheels are zero offset as required by the Casita?
I would greatly appreciate confirmation of my tentative choices and any other help.
Thank you all
