14" factory ranger wheels and more
« on: June 29, 2017, 02:10:06 PM »
Does anybody have one or a set hanging around?  Wondering what the rim width is and backspacing.  Need to replace the tires on the camper in the next year or so and thinking they would be a cheap upgrade to the steel wheels on my camper.

Slightly on topic but not..  Our camper has 205/75-14 load range c tires, does anyone know of a load range d or (fingers crossed) e tire in the same size or a 15" rim version that the tire would be just at 26" overall tire diameter?  I found 205/75-15 but they are 27" diameter (1" larger) which will reduce the space between tires by 1 inch.  As it is now, the tires are very close and my scissor chocks barely fit between the tires.

Gracias

F-It.  I had two blow outs on the way home today, one up in Biddeford ME and the other down in Seabrook MA.  Jegs had a set of D load tires in the size I needed for a fairly reasonable price. Since I am down two tires now I bought 4 new ones and will have extra spares... because I wish I had those today. Luckily our friends were with us and had a spare that fit.

Sticking with the steelies, might put a coat of paint on them for good measure.

Pretty sure the both tires were just old and blew out, I checked pressure when I left the campground and again after the first blow out and all tires were at 50 psi which is the max.  Also the two tires that didn't blow were newer, one replaced last year and the other the year before that. Not sure how old the tires were, I will check the date on them, but the camper is a 2010 and these are not original to the trailer.
