Can't find tires i like. Jayco 165

Jayco 165 ultra lite sport. I can't find a 185/80/13 tire with a adequate weight rating. Camper is 2870 lbs. I don't want tires anywhere near their limit. I found a set on Amazon. Carlisle tire and it said the max weight rating was 1800ų lbs. When they came in the tire said something like 1480 weight rating. Any ideas? Anybody put the 205 14" tires and wheels on? I'm wanting to take the camper on a couple of road trips.

If your loaded camper weight is 2870, remember that at least 10% will go on the tongue. That would take the weight on the tires down to 2583. If that is the weight of the camper before you load it, then I see where you are coming from. Either way, I also agree with you with having plenty of Tire underneath.

Simpletire.com has National Road Max ST's with a rating of 1709. Highly rated by 11 users at that site.

Welcome Aboard!

From what I found online, your dry weight (empty) is 2835 lbs. GVWR (fully loaded) is 3500. The GVWR minus tongue weight (10%, 350 lbs) is what you need to base your new tires off this value.

Your single axle weight should be less than 3150 lbs. So each tire needs to carry a minimum of 1575 lbs. If my info is correct, there is not many 13" tires that can carry that load.

I upgraded to the Carlisle 185/80R13 Radial Trail RH load range D (1710 lbs), from the OEM C rated (1480 lbs) tire. I like them. There is a load range C version of this Carlisle tire. I suspect that is what you ordered.
