17.5" tire upgrade

We should be taking delivery of our trailer next week and I want to upgrade the Westlakes to the G114 at 17.5..
I am looking for specs on the stock wheel... offset ?? 9/16" lugs ? 4.90" center bore ?
Has anyone speced out a new unit with that option ? what was the cost to you -vs- the shown msrp on them ?

Just took delivery of 38GK with LR G tires on it. Dealer or tire dealer would not allow me enough trade to makes the switch until I need a tire replacement. There is a company in Rush Springs, Ok. Wheels Express that will put together a package @ $1600 for Alumn wheel & Westlake H tire.

I just did the 17.5 H tire upgrade. Certainly not cheap but after doing the IS and Disc brake upgrade, it was obvious that I was getting close to the weight limit on my G 614 tires. Mor/ryde weighed my rig at each tire and that was the deciding factor, I purchased from trailertiresandwheels.com and went with the Goodyear G114 H tires and new aluminum rims.

I just did the same thing. Went with the 17.5 Goodyear. Mounted and balanced and shipped to my front door. Sure feels good to not have to worry about blowing those E tires.

I have the original Sendel T-3 wheels with Marathon E tires for sale if anyone needs some for a light trailer. Any idea what I should ask for them?

I decided I'm swapping the wheels and tires off my trade-in onto the new one ... They are Goodyear G114's with less than 750 miles on them ..

I believe the upgrade is listed as $2200 or $2300 option. The dealer has some wiggle room and you might be able to negotiate a better price.
