Has anyone upgraded to 16” rims and tires on a 28’ United trailer or similar? It’s time for tires on my trailer and before I buy trying to decide if I should go 16” and what all would be involved/pros and cons to the change
If you are wanting higher load capacity you can get up to 14 ply tires for 15 inch wheels.

This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.
Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

I changed over years ago and it was the best thing I ever did to my trailer. The selection of tires in 16" are endless and wear forever. On my 28' trailer, I use 215/85R16 or have used 225/75R16. either one you use will have ample clearance. I don't think 235/85 will fit in the fender wells.

I've got 16"s on my Pace 28'. Only thing is the trailer sits higher than most if that's a problem loading. I buy already mounted tires with steel wheels and sell my old ones every few years. Easy to sell the 16's to horse and cattle trailer guys.
