Did you mean to say 17.5" tires? That is the usual replacement rim for a Montana. It seems 19.5" would have issues with the top of the wheel well.

Weird. I didn't look at the website, I actually thought this was an ad at first, but I know several members are using 17.5" tires but I have never noticed anyone using 19.5" ones.

It is actually a 19.5 wheel. Their CRUISER 67 WHEEL/TIRE CONVERSION - CONVERT 235/(80 OR 85)R16 TO 225 OR 245/70R19.5. The diameter is the same as 235 80R16's that I had on my Montana. The side wall is shorter - plus it gives the tire better stability when turning. The have either Continentals or Michelins. I have the Michelin 225/70R19.5 Pilot XZE. The outer diameter 32.2". There was maybe a 1/4" difference. The 19.5's fit perfect.

This isn't an ad...I am a real user that on our last trip had to replace all 4 tires.

##MARKETING## PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Boar Wheel brings you the Cruiser 67 as the perfect fit for your trailer with an eight bolt pattern. You can now protect and perfect your trailer, and precious cargo with 19.5 wheels and tires. Upgrade from 235/80R16 or 235/85R16 tires to commercial grade 19.5". With the same 32" outer diameter as a 235/85R16, there will be no trailer modifications to address. With 19.5’s you can expect an extended commercial tire life (some customers have attained well over 150,000 miles before replacement!), increased tow and load capacities (6,050 lbs. load capacity per wheel), and improved fuel economy when towing (many customers reporting a 1-2 mpg improvement). The Cruiser 67 is capable of carrying anything you can throw at it and then some. Its optional lug-centric (1/2” & 9/16” lug studs) or hub-centric (5/8” lug studs) design and 6,050-pound capacity enable the use of many tire options that are right for any load. This wheel will ensure you Get There, every time! (Center cap included!)

I learn something new every day. And just in time as one of my original wheels has a crack and needs to be replaced. I am definitely going to investigate this option.
