There is an offset on the 16" wheel because it is wider than a 15" wheel.
The Eagle wheel is rated at 3040lbs. That gives you a total of 12,160lbs for all 4 wheels.
The 225/75 XPS Rib is rated at 2680lbs. That gives you 10,720lbs worth of tire.
I would be more concerned with the tire than the wheel.

You can run the 235/85 tires if you have a lift or your axles flipped on your tow behind.
You don't have enough height clearance to run the 235 when the trailer is at a stock height.
Hence the reason I run 225/75. I did not have the axles flipped or spacers added when I had my FS3000.
I am getting a 2" spacer added to my LE3905 but will run my 225 tires until they wear out or rot, then I will get 235 tires.

Unfortunately, 2 axle trailers are in worse shape than 3.
You can have any weld shop or Warrior add the 2" higher spacer to your trailer and then you can run the 235 tire.
Good luck.

Inflated dimensions(inches)


225/75/16 29.4tall 7.2 tread width/ section width 8.7 on a 6.0 rim

235/85/16 32.2tall 7.1 tread width/ section width 9.2 on a 6.5 rim

Using these measurments it would appear that a 235 tire is approx 5/10ths or 1/2 inch wider than a 225 at its widest point.which will equate to a 1/4"on each side. When loaded heavy with a stock height set up you would have a problem fitting the wider tire into the fender wells. However you are going to be starting out 2 inches above that starting point. Just guessing I don't think you'll have a problem with 0 or -10 offset. To center the rim 10mm away from the axles would put you at the same inside plane as a 0 offset 225. Hope this helps. BB

Thanks lincster.

I have my trailer lifted so that's not an issue anymore. They cut out the original 2" subframe and welded in a new 4" subframe, giving a 2" lift over stock.

It sounds like you've done the homework on this, so I'm inclined to go with your advice. I will be running 235/85 16 XPS Rib. I would like a little higher weight rating on the wheels, but if I go over the rated 3040 per wheel, I'll be over on the axles anyway.

Thanks BB, with those measurements, it does look like both wheels will work.

Thanks again,

Wes

After rereading all info and linc's input a -10 offset rim sounds like the way to go if your going to run the 235's. Offset and backsapcing I would assume are the same thing? Offset measured in mm and backspacing measured in inches? hehe this get's a little confusing. BB

You got it BB. A little confusing is right. Took me a while to understand this stuff when I first started researching it.

Wes, you are good to go then. The 235 is the way to go. You will never wear out that tire.

A 16x6 rim would also help with section width also, though I doubt it would be dramatic.

I ordered the Eagle Alloys 0550-7766 wheels today,(thanks lincster) they'll be here Thursday. Summit Racing was having a 10% off sale so I got them for $75.00 ea.

Now It's time to get the 68 Z-28 out tonight becouse it's Hot August Nights this week. The best event in Reno. Too much fun!!

I love the smell of race gas.

Wes

Man o man Wes,

I wish I was there with you guys. I love muscle cars, I had a 66 Fairlane with a 428 Cobra Jet, and then a 67 Mustang Fastback GT with a 390. My dad had a 70 Torino Cobra 429. These are what I grew up with. I can remember working on someone car thru the night to be able to cruise the next night.

Someday, when I win the lotto, I'm going to buy my AC Cobra. (Someday!!!)

Have fun, burn a few dino's for me...

Clark

Clark it's like music, it's what you grew up with. For me it was Chevells, Camaros, Nova's Malibu's and Corvettes. Just like music, you like what you grew up with. Not that I don't like any of those you mentioned but that's usually how one man is Ford one Chevy and one Mopar. God I miss those days

You know Don,

I would take any muscle car from the late 60's thru early 70's. I liked them all, Hemi Cuda's Roadrunners, GTX's, Nova's, Camaros, Vette's, Chevelle's, El Camino's, Mustang's, Fairlane's, Torino's, AMX's ..... You are right, "the good old day's" I was in a group of friends where we all had something different. We would tear something apart and put back together in no time. We cruised Redondo Beach, Van Nuys, wherever there were cars and girls...

If only I had he money I spent in those days now

But if I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't change a thing

The amazing thing is that now a days you just reprogram the computer and you've got a car just as powerful as when we built the crap out of them, AND they get 20 MPG...

Give me an old muscle car anyday....

Clark

AAAAAuuggghhhhh!!

Geeez! Griz! Give us a warning before you do that, OK?

Wow...OK OK OK...my heart is now down to a mere 180/120 ...I turn to page 6, and there's this hippy with his hands on a cherry picker posing like he's John Travolta with a bad Michael Jackson treatment- yikes!

Whew...now what were 'we' talking about????
