Wheels

Went to the storage yard this weekend to get the MAX PSI on my wheels and found out, it can't be done without taking the wheel off. Which I wasn't prepared for. The drum hides all the spokes. Checked all four and still couldn't see it. Does anyone (with similar trailer weight) know? Can I go with LRE and 85psi?

Dry weight = 8517 lbs.

Just fyi...the tire sticker on the trailer shows factory LRD and MAX PSI of 65psi.

Not sure how similar they are but I was able to see the max load rating of 2850 stamped on my wheels. Like you I couldn't see max PSI.

My trailer dry is 6550 and we are typically 7500 loaded. Max Weight is 9200 although we never get close to that.

I just ordered Load range E Maxxis tires after a local tire dealer confirmed my aluminum wheels could take the increased PSI.

I had the same issue. I called Jayco with my Vin number. They had to get back to me, as they had to contact their supplier.

Trailer tires have a wide range of load capabilities, depending on manufacturer and model. Over time, with my old toy hauler, I learned to only use Load Range E tires. I used Maxxis, Goodyear, and Carlisle trailer tires at various times, all with pretty good results, unless I picked up a nail or something like that. Only endured one blowout, and I am certain it was a nail that dropped the pressure and ran the tire hot. I ended up replacing tires from wear about every 2-3 years, because the right front always scuffed down well before the others. My trailer was over 10,000 lbs fully loaded.

Well, finally got an answer from the manufacturer of the wheels and they said I should be good to go. All 15" aluminum 6 lug wheels manufactured by them can be upgraded from LRD to LRE. He said the 16" wheels are a different story. Did not know that...now I do! And of course...stronger valve stems!


Thanks everyone!

So, I finally got an email back from Jayco stating the wheels are rated to 80 psi. Yet the manufacturer and supplier for the wheels says differently. Who to believe?


I'm going with the manufacturer. What say you?

I say take off the tire and read the ratings first hand
