I just did the opposite in sizing, 20's to 18's.
From P's to LT's though (Pirelli to GY)
They were new 2011 (or 12's?) FX4 takeoffs I bought cheap.

Are the stock wheels hub or lug centric? Never really thought of it until now.

Don't worry, all stock wheels are hub centric... Lug centric only apply to after market wheels. They do that so they can reuse the same wheels for different hub size.

For towing with my P tires, I always inflate them to 42lbs. I find that it helps with backend wiggle. Does any one else do this when towing?

Yep, 44 pounds when I tow.

It's a 2013 Dutchmen Denali 261 BH. We bought it last year.

Yeah, it sagging in that pic. The pic was from last Summer the first day we got it. I've since installed the Firestone Airbags. Much nicer now. I went with the in-cab controller and had it mounted inside the center console, so it's hidden...
