Have you got the most recent version for 2019 and up?

We were told its still in testing.

 

No. Used it on my 18 to adjust stuff though. Works great.

What are you doing with the wheels and tires you have now? Those would look good on my new King trailer.

Rear tires on the Challenger are getting down to the wearbars. Time for new skins. 315/35 R20. For a comparison, here is one next to the tires for my Dodge Colt GT which are 225/50 R16.

It's Boat Trailer sizes that confuse me.

 

I'm going from a 14" wheel to a 15" wheel.  So I need to be concerned about overall diameter of the wheel and tire.

 

Current 14" is a 205/75R14  Which I believe is a 26"x 8"

 

So I need a 205/70R15 which if I'm doing this right would be 26.3 x 8.1

But I'll be damned if  can find that size so it looks like I'll be doing a 205/75R15  which is 27.1 x 8.1 pretty sure I have enough clearance between tire and wheel.

 

 

 

That's why i had to run 15" tires/ wheels on the new trailer. 16" would not fit as the with and aspect ratio were the same, but eh wheel was an inch larger. 

 

I have always used cross section/ 25.4x aspect ratio+ wheel height.

 

205/ 25.4= 8.07"x .75= 6.05x2= 12.10"+14"= 26.10"

If you can find a 205/70-15 that will be close. 26.30"

 

But I think the smallest 15" ST trailer tire is the 205/75-15. If you run a standard car radial, you will have more options. And they will work just as well if not better as long as you run them at max pressure and they have the required capacity.

29" tall? That's a big one.

 

I am looking at 315/30r18 for the bird.

Yep, factory height. A 315/35 R20 is the same height as the factory 275/40 R20 so there is no rolling difference between front and rear. I don't like super low profile tires so keeping the same sidewall height is always nice.

I put the same toyo tire on my truck back in 2015, still running on them. 285/75/17 but I have 6 of them.

Yeah, I only have room for about 27" height.
