    Hello all...

    I did to some searching around here before posting this, but may just be missing what I am looking for.

    I am about 33% into a reno of my camper and am ready to put the wheels back on. The existing ones are 155/r12... and having been sitting in the sun for 20+ years, they are shot. I have been pointed in the direction of using 5.30/12s but would like some more input on that.

    Also... since it has been sitting so long, should I regrease the axel (it spins VERY smoothly) or should that be OK?

    The size should be ok. just pay attention to the load range of the replacement tire. But I would never take a chance on the bearings. Pull the hubs, clean and repack the bearings along with new seals
