Is there an advantage to
16" wheels and tires over 15" wheels and tires if the same axles are used? I am in the process of finalizing a deal on a new Jayco Eagle 5th wheel and one of the things that made my mind up was the 16" wheel option. Well, I found out today that it's only the wheels and tires that change. It uses the same 5,000 pound axles so there's no increase in the rated load capacity. My first thought is that it's still a worthwhile upgrade and will give me some extra security from blowouts. Any ideas on this?
