I'm making plans to put new rubber on my 2012 Holiday Rambler Endeavor 43DFT - and have been speaking to a fleet tire supplier who will happily work with me under the FMCA tire discount program.
My coach came outfitted with Goodyear G670 295/80R22.5 tires. While I haven't had any issues with the Goodyear tires - I'm looking at replacing them with the Michelin XZA2 tires. While discussing it with the folks at the fleet tire supplier - it was suggested that I consider replacing the 295/80R22.5 tires with the slightly larger 315/80R22.5 tires.
According to the folks at the fleet tire supplier - my existing wheels/rims will accommodate the slightly larger tire - and that moving to the larger tire will increase the weight limits of the individual tire by a bit. While I'm well within the weight limits of either size - the idea of adding a bit more "headroom" to my capacity doesn't sound like a bad
According to the tire specs below - it looks like the larger tires would add 1/32nd worth of tread depth - and add 1 inch to the diameter and .8 inches to the overall tire width. I appear to have sufficient space (wheels, cowling clearance, etc.) to accommodate the increase in size.
Can anybody give me a good reason NOT to move to the slightly larger tire?
