Hi Harrell, 

The 175s are about 1/2 in bigger in diameter than the 155s. You will also have a larger carrying capacity. The biggest thing to be aware of is the load rating, or the new load index rating to make sure you got a tire that is capable of carrying the load. You want a minimum of a load range c with load range d even better. The load index will be around 86 with 91 being preferable. Hope this helps.

I have a 1969 Wildcat. I’m in the process of figuring out the layout I’m going to use (different than the original) so that I can rough in some of the electrical. No, I’m not an electrician, but I’m planning on using my Serro Scotty as a blueprint.

So what year do you have? Done anything restoration wise? I just got a 65. Many plans for it!

I recreated the banner, as best I could. The PO did such a poor paint job, I was able to uncover one wildcat and went from there. I purchased a 1969 Wildcat in 2013 and set it aside to renovate a 1969 Serro Scotty. I am back to working on my Wildcat (which has been in a storage locker) and am up to the point of wiring some of my outside lights. 

I'll echo some of the previous comments: there is very little info on these campers out there!
