We do not carry any tires that are 16-1/2 inches to fit the 16-1/2 inch wheels like # 17-163-7. That is more commonly a Light Truck Tire for use on a motorhome and requires Light Truck which we don't carry in that size or Passenger tires which we do not carry at all.

If you want to change out both wheels and tires on a trailer, then I do have a recommendation. The 16 inch size is far more popular than the 16.5 inch and will give you many more options but will also give you larger and wider tires. Your current tires have a section width of 8.8 inches and a diameter of 29.5 inches so the most similar tire is the 225/75R15 tires so I recommend using a 15 inch wheel for that application.

My recommendation is the Westlake ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" Silver Mod Wheel - 6 on 5-1/2 - Load Range E # LHAW124 which is rated for 2,830 lbs at 80 psi and speeds up to 75 mph. It comes with a 5 year warranty on the tire, one year on the wheel, and 2 years of complimentary roadside assistance.

If you want a slightly higher speed rating, then I recommend the Contender ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" Silver Mod Wheel - 6 on 5-1/2 - Load Range E # AC225R6SMEQ. This combination is also rated for 2,830 lbs at 80 psi but max speeds up to 81 mph. It also comes with 2 years roadside assistance on its 2 year warranty.
