325 BHQS Wheel Rating

I know there is another thread on wheel psi ratings, but this is a different class and model.

We are more than likely going to pull the trigger on a 325 BHQS in the next 10 days or so. I will definitley be doing the Maxxis upgrade, but would really like to go ahead and do the GY G614 or Sailun G rated upgrade before delivery.

Does anyone know the wheel rating on this 2016 Jayco Eagle 325BHQS model?

Thanks for any help.

Actually no it doesnt. I know the tire specs, but I'm trying to determine the wheel psi ratings. If I upgrade to a G rated LT tire, I need to know that the wheels are spec'd to handle the 100-110 psi on the tires.

But you're more than welcome to give me your thoughts on your fiver. How do you like it? How has it treated you so far?

I've been told by tire salesmen that rims that handle 80 psi can handle 95-110 psi but the valve stems need to be switched over to metal stems that are designed for high psi.

I'm not so sure about the accuracy of that. Perhaps someone else can chime in.

We love our 325 BHQS. We especially like the extra room in the living space with the opposing slides. We take our grandchildren and on those rainy days it is nice to have the extra room. We also like that the bunk house is at the opposite side of the main bedroom. This allows me to get up early and not wake the grand kids. Another feature we like is the TV being across from the recliners, so your not twisting your heads on those occasions your stuck inside.

Based on weights JAYCO runs 90 psi with G-614 they do not install steel valve stems. Goodyear backs that info with their tire pressure chart, no need to run max 110 psi.

Good to hear. ALL of the reasons you listed are the reason we like this floorplan. Especially the TV across from the recliners!

You are correct! I wasn't planning on running 110, because I won't be at max weight for the tires. But, I do need to make sure the wheels can handle 85-95psi. And steel valve stems wouldn't be a requirement for that psi, but it wouldn't hurt to install them anyway.

The rims on my 2011 are rated for 110psi It's cast into the rim spoke.

I run my G614's at 100 psi.
