282DBHS Wheels

My 2016 282DBHS has 14" wheels on it and that just bothers me. I am constantly trying to find ways to improve the cargo capacity of the trailer and I am considering putting 15" wheels on there as I believe that should improve stability and towing. Has anyone tried this? Does anyone have any comments or opinions on this subject? I'd appreciate any input you folks can provide. Perhaps I'm overthinking this capacity thing and should just use the rig and stop worrying so much.

I flipped the axles and put some real tires on it so we can camp off road. 31X10.5 BFGoodrich T/A KO2 on a 15" rim. Very happy with it. Seems to ride better.
