Replacing Trailer Tires on Horse Trailer from 15 Inch to 16 Inch for Better Ground Clearance


I have a 1993 WW 3H GN trailer and am wanting to replace the 15inch wheel/tires with 16inch to raise the rear of the trailer a little. Can you tell me what I can replace them with? It is a 6 bolt pattern on the wheel. I would like them rated for highway driving. I also have had the axles blocked 3inch so there is plenty of room in the wheel wells. Gladiator 225/75R15 10 ply tires. Thanks

Good news, I can help you pick out a great 6 on 5-1/2 tire and wheel for all you needs.

The Taskmaster # A16RTK6SM with silver mod wheel or the Taskmaster # TTWA16RTK6WS with steel white spoke wheel will be a great 10 ply rated tire and wheel for you horse trailer. Both of these tire and wheel combinations are rated for 3,520lbs max load at 80 psi and are speed rated for 81mph (speed rating M) and have a 2-year limited warranty. Both tire and wheels will give you an outer diameter of 30.79 inches to give you the extra heght your looking for compared to your 225/75-15 (28.28 inches) that's currently on your trailer.

I have linked the above mentioned products to this page for your viewing and purchasing convenience.
