Just remember that a 17 inch wheel has the lowest load carrying availability number, on average, than 16’s or 18’s. The important number to have on a truck tire used with a truck camper is the max load number in pounds. My Cooper 35 inch, AT-3 XLT’s in a 315x75R16 size have a weight bearing number of 3860 pounds per wheel. That’s 7720 pounds per axle. Plenty enough for my stick and aluminum Lance Lite. Look for the stamped number on the inside rim of one of your wheels to find out the load capacity. If it’s lower than your tire capacity, look for stronger wheels.
