Default 17.5 / 19.5

Hi All, Has anyone tried /or is contemplating installing either 17.5 or 19.5 commercial truck rims and 12 ply tires on their class C rigs? I have! Let me hear your experiences if you have. Rich in TN.

Welcome to the Gulf Stream Owners RV Forum!

Look for ward to reading more of your posts here on the forum and the responses.

I have a brother that lives in Gallatin, TN and I was born in Fountainhead. It is between Gallatin and Portland on Rt 109. I have loans of family in Tennessee, aunts, uncles and cousins.

Rich welcome to GS owners forum. I think you will find a very limited choice of tires in the 17.5 size I had them on a 1978 Winnebago and they were hard to get in 1989 only one or two company's made them I don't now about now? Maybe they are coming back.

Hi Earl, Ron, The 17.5s are coming back. Not a big choice yet, but good. That's why I went with 19.5. What a nice difference in road feel and sense of stability. Doesn't "waddle" around either. Close fit under the wheel wells of the E-350 chassis, especially the fronts. I also added Bilstein shocks. Rich
