What's with the "C" rated tires on the Whitehawk ??

I have a 2014 Jayco 24RBS Whitehawk. I see the tires are a "C" rated tire. Which is a 50 MPH rated tire. I think .
So most of us tow at speeds of 60-65MPH.
I am new to the RVing, so I been told Jayco are some of the best TT out there. Why do they put such a low speed rated tire on their units?
After all these are Travel Trailers , Right ?
Mike

Mike,

I'm fairly certain that all "ST" tires are rated at 65mph, which would include your "C" tire.

Bob

On Edit: I believe that an "ST" tire and with a "C" load range is rated for 50psi maximum.

Mike C is a weight rating not a speed rating.. ST tires are rated to 65 MPH
