2014 Sesimic Rims, G Rated for 110psi or just E?

Looking at replacing the Blowmax set for a GY G614 G rated tire. I won't be able to crawl under the rig and check the rating on back side of rim. Anyone know off hand if it's just an E rim or if it's rated for 110-120 psi for a G?

If I was a betting man, I'd bet they just put Es on this thing, which means to go G means wheel replacement. Urgh. FYI Heartland for '16 started putting G rated shoes stock on its Cyclones. Seems they recognized that like the 3914 where all the weight is on the back right corner with kitchen slide (reefer stove pantry etc) some tires are at or near rated weight. Plus E rating plus Blowmax equals Boom. Simple math! Thanks! If you have a 2013 I believe it's the same rim and tire. Not sure on '15.

It should be. I just switched to the G614 last month and my rims were stamped 110psi on the inside of the rim. You may need to pull a tire off to see. If you make the switch search search the internet for the Goodyear rebate on the G614 $20 per tire.

Awesome. Thanks Terry. I will do that. How has your experience with the 614s been? I've read mostly great reports with an occasional report of some bad performance. Either way it's got to be better than the Blowmax.

The 614s are great. The main thing I notice is when the tires scrub in a tight turn the 614s slide very nice, the Towmax would flex the side walls to where I thought the tire could come off the rim. When you compare the two tires side by side there is a huge difference in the side wall thickness. I was always nervous traveling with the Towmax, i upgraded after one year.

I'm ordering tomorrow. Taking a trip from CT to OC Maryland next month. Had the rig for year and a half. Definitely want these on before we leave

I am having G614s installed Monday morning replacing 2 year old TowMax tires.

At one time, they were hard to find. Glad to hear that GY has cranked up the supply.

If you have any doubt about these tires, pick one up and compare the weight and thickness to the Towmax.

2014 Sesimic Rims, G Rated for 110psi or just E?

Oh no doubt. I was considering going GY 114s which I believe are 75mph tires on a 17.5" rim, that was when I was assuming they were not 110psi rims OEM from Jay. They say the 114s (17" brother to the G614) are bulletproof but that adds 1300-1400 to the price tag, and makes no sense if I already have a 110psi on there now, unless I sold my current rims as spares to our members here for a great price. I had a good thought for my Blowmax tires when they come off, put them on spare crappy steel rims (unless I get new rims) and bolt them on prior to winter storage, so the GYs don't sit.

How bad are the towmax tires supposed to be? I have towed Ohio to California and now to Oregon. Am I just getting lucky so far? No blowouts, flats or other issues (knocks on wood)
