Travato Replacement Tires

I have a 2917 Winnebago Travato 59K. This vehicle is on a 2016 Ram Pro Master 3500 chassis. I need replacement shoes. Stock size is 225 75R16.

Just got back from RTR 2019. Anyone who was in the area knows the entire SW was wet this year. one thing I learned is that the factory shoes are totally useless in a wet desert. These tires are just street tires. Got stuck and had to be pulled out 3 times in less than a day.

So... Looking for new shoes with a bigger lug and hopefully taller. I need more traction and better ground clearance as it doesn't take much to lose the measly 6" below the generator.

Problem is the Pro Master wasn't gifted with a tremendous amount of clearance in the wheel wells. The driving wheels (front) only offer about an inch clearance with fender flare.

Has anyone got any suggestions WRT what will work best?

Take a look at these listings as it will give you a more aggressive tire without sacrificing clearance: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireS...earDiameter=17
Basically, you're stuck with what you have on clearance, I think, unless you start modifying with lifts, etc. Then you get into handling issues that you may not want, or need.
