Yip, rims checked with Jayco, confirm they are 80 psi. This is the statement I got from the wheel supplier. That wheel is a 16X6 8-6.5 aluminum split spoke wheel with a 0 offset. It is rated to 3580# at 80spi. These should be run at 80 psi. This was direct from Adam @ tredittire. So I got 2000 miles on my towmaxs do the winter trip and change everything in the spring. Jayco and all the manufactures that put these inferior tires on the heavy 5ers are sure doing there customers an injustice

I feel your pain. I don't know why some had 80 psi rims and others have 110 psi rims. I was the lucky one when time came to upgrade with E rated rims.

Either way, I was going up an load range.

I upgraded to 17.5" rims and Goodyear H Rated G114 tires which have outstanding reputation for reliability, more so than the G rated G614. Call Mike at trailertiresandwheels.com. Tell him Chris recommended you to call. Great service and great prices. Mounted and balanced with lugs center caps etc. Jayco has moved away from Blowmax but using a G rated not as rated unknown tire manufacturer, but fills with Nitro now, which has no affect on the quality of the tire.

Also looking at replacing the Towmax's on my '14 Eagle Premier 361REQS. My rims are only rated to 80psi. If I go to the S637's I need to either change the rims or run them @ 80-85psi and de-rate the tire load capacity.

Putting on 17.5's is overkill I think. I'm in Canada so the shipping from the US shops will be pretty high I expect. Just looking to move to a tire that is more reliable and can handle the weight. I have 7k axles.

Alternative Repalcement tires for Jayco 5th Wheel

Go with a Set of Goodyear G614s. They are G rated, have excellent results (see this and other manufacturer/owner forums like Heartland and Keystone as I've done prior to purchasing my GYs). You will be very pleased and will be getting an excellent tire and a dependable warranty. Give Mike at trailertiresandwheels.com a call, tell him Chris recommended you on Jayco. You will get best price available and great service. (419)272-2277

Can I run the G614's @ 80psi and still get enough load capacity? The wheels I have now are only rated to 80psi & 3580lbs. Pretty marginal OE equipment for wheels on 7k axles in my opinion.

Wasn't directly related to the tire thread.

Personally,If I was going to run G614's at 80 psi, I would just go with Maxxis, E rated.

I run my G614's at 100 psi with my 110psi rated rims. Sometime they exceed the 110psi due to heat buildup but I am willing to accept the downgrade in load carrying capacity to give my rims a little more capacity.

Just my way of rationalizing it. I'm not overloaded, even if I was using E rated tires.
