Installing 10 Ply Tires On a 2019 Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 27RR Travel Trailer Toy Hauler


I recently purchased a 2019 Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 27RR Toy Hauler and I want to upgrade to a 10 ply or greater tire package. The stock wheels are 14 inch not sure of the specs because the unit is not here with me. They are the stock setup from the factory though. If I were to do a tire only upgrade do you have anything meeting this criteria? If I were to do a tire and wheel package 14 inch to 15 inch do you have anything compatible with my trailer?

I was able to find that your 2019 Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 27RR comes with 205/75R14 tires load range D on a 14x5.5" wheels and uses a 5 on 4-1/2" lug pattern.

If you want to get to a 10-ply rated tire you will need to move to a 15" wheel. I recommend a Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545 to be used with a Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10303. Currently we do not have any wheel and tire packages that have the 225/75R15 on a 15" wheel that has a 5 on 4-1/2" lug pattern. You will want to ensure that your Grey Wolf does have the clearance to fit the larger wheels and tires. The new tires will be roughly 1" wider(1/2" each side) and 2-1/4" taller(1-1//8" less tire clearance). You ideally want at least 3" vertical clearance, 1" sidewall clearance and since you have a tandem axle 2" between the treads for the larger tires. While the larger tires are capable of a higher capacity your Grey Wolf only has 3,500LB axles so it will not increase your trailer capacity.
