I'm pretty sure I've seen my rims on larger trailers which leads me to believe they will be ok... Just need to see the numbers to verify.
EDIT - just found my wheels on the Sendel website. I have the T03SM in 15 inch. There is a 5 bolt version and a 6 bolt with pressure ratings of 60 and 80 psi respectively. I have the 5 bolt which means I can only run 60lbs and LR D tires are rated to 65psi I believe. So am I ok to just run 60lbs in a 65lb rated tire?
I wouldn't worry about it, but I'm just some anonymous guy on the internet. You should be able to look up an inflation chart somewhere that will tell you the tire capacity at different pressures to verify you'll still be better off (I'd expect that you will be).
I'd like to see a picture of a wheel that failed from having too much pressure in it! I can't imagine how it would fail. Now from a load standpoint, I can see how that would fail.
