I second on the Maxxis 880 as well. We put about 5,000 miles on our tires in one trip with no problems. The Maxxis performed very well.

Just grab a flashlight and crawl under and have a look. I took a piece of paper towel with me to clean off the markings if needed.
Will do,should be stamped with psi?
And is it usually on a spoke?

Mine either had psi or weight rating or both. I simply don't recall. The markings weren't hard to find, but a paper towel will help if yours were as dirty as mine were.

We changed to the Goodyear G614 last year. The wheels are stamped with a weight rating only. A call to Jayco with the VIN indicated the wheels are rated at 90 PSI. With 90 PSI we are well within the tire rating according to the Goodyear charts. I would highly recommend getting individual wheel weights for the trailer as they will not be equally loaded. We have a difference of over 500 pounds on wheel weights, I am told that is very common on heavy 5th wheels.

Trailer tires wear out due to age more often than due to tread wear. Per Goodyear 3 to 5 years is all you should expect for a trailer tire life, at that age the tire has lost 50% of its strength.

As others have stated, I would upsize the tire rating to the highest you can justify, and run at the max tire pressure. Ideally the tire pressure noted on the sidewall.

Here is a like to a Sticky regarding Trailer Tire Facts.

I called treadit tires,the vendor that supplied the wheels to jayco, and Jordan looked my wheels up, 7 spoke aluminum , and he said they are 16x6 with a 110 psi and 3750lbs load rating. Goodyear recommends a 6.5" rim for the 614'$ is anyone running these on a 6" rim?

I am.

I have a 2011 365BHS.
I had one of the OEM Marathons throw a tread that caused about 6k in damage. Thank god for insurance....

Replaced the Tredit T03 wheels with Tredit T02 wheels and upgraded to G614 tires with the TST pressure monitoring system w flow through monitors.

All good since.

Mine are the stock 6 inch wide rims that came on it. The Goodyear dealer that put them on said the 1/2 inch width difference made no difference.

That's good to hear. I have the T02 wheels also.
Since you have a 365bhs there's no one better to ask, do you have any clearance issues with the 235 85 16's? They are close to 1 " taller than the 235 80 16 marathons.

Also,what is your TV?
