Okay, if your existing axle is 3500 lbs, you are probably okay. I guess I may have missed that or just assumed the smaller rims could be an obstacle.

Be sure to check the battery on the breakaway system every now and then. I checked my battery for the first time when it was 4 years old and it was completely dead and wouldn't take a charge, and had to buy a new one. I read that they only last a couple of years, so I wonder how long I was towing with a non-working breakaway system.
