Tire and wheel up grade

We have an 2010 Fuzion 322 with 16" rims, and although the rims are pretty sweet the tires, well not to sure about,
about 2 weeks ago We were contacted by a friend of ours to see if we wanted to upgrade our TV tires and wheels to 19.5 rims and matching set of tires, of course I said yes, these tires are going to be either F or H rated and the rims are rated at 4300LBS per,
so a few days later I get another call and was asked (would you be interested in a matching set for our trailer) the catch is these are also going to be 19.5 rims and either F or H rated tires, I replied sure why not,
Now I have never seen a 5ver with 19.5 rims and tire combo but they tell me they will fit just fine, and I could even get about 70 to 80K out of these tires,
so my question to you all is have u ever seen a 5ver with 19.5 wheel and rim combo
I will have these here on Monday so I will find out by monday night or tuesday if they are going to fit

I've never seen 19.5" wheels on a 5th wheel - Rickson makes a 19.5" conversion that is fairly popular on Dodge Ram/Cummins forums, but they are pretty tall.

If you're looking for uprated load capacity, I converted to 17.5" J-rated Michelin XTA radials and aluminum wheels earlier this year that are rated 4805 lbs @ 120 PSIG. They are about the same diameter as the previous G-rated Goodyear G614s that were rated 3750 lbs @ 110 PSIG.

Trailer wheels require zero offset. The wrong offset such as a truck wheel is extremly hard on the trailer wheel bearings. Premature failure is usually the result. Many folks , including myself, found that out the hard way.

Use the tires to match the job. You can have too much tire especially on a trailer.

From what I was told the rims for the trailer are made for trailers but when they get here on Monday I can measure the off set,
the only this that is going to match is bascially the wheel pattern or design, and if they do not work out no biggie, we can send them back with no questions asked
I know that the wheel and tire combo for the truck will work out for sure
I'll keep you all posted on this

just curious.... why the heck would you upgrade to 19.5's....... i have 19.5 on my rv and would give my left....... well we get the picture, to have 16's or 18's... nobody will touch a 19.5 other than a big truck shop and just saying that automatically doubles the bill per tire.... if mine didn't sit so freakin low already (1 electric kwikee step is 1" off the ground!) i would send you mine and trade for yours!!!

please send pics though, would love to see it!

I check the tracking on them this morning and they are in transit from LA still,
and why would I go to 19.5? well good question, I was not planning on it but when they were thrown in on the deal for nothing I said sure
If I do not like them I can always send them back
we also are getting matching spares for the truck and trailer so I should be good to go if I ever need to replace one

Sweet wheels! I'd love to have 19.5s on my dually. 5er no room for larger diameter tires.

Tires on on the truck, I'll post those pictures later tonight. I have to hook the trailer up in the morning and move it to level ground before I do the wheels on it, I'm pretty sure they will fit,
I think the wheels look pretty good on the truck
makes it sit a bit higher

I got the tires on the truck and also on the trailer,
they are 19.5 on both the truck and trailer, they fit nice, I will post pictures later today if I can remember my freakin password to shutterfly,
these are sweet,
Rim rating is 4500 per on the trailer, Tire rating is 3960 per tire at 95PSI, they are Hankook AH11 comerical truck tires, There is a big differance in the rims and tires, once you see the pictures you will see it for yourself
