Another Tire Question

We are replacing the tires on our 2015 Pinnacle FBTS. The current tires size we have is ST 235 80R16. We are looking to purchase G614 tires with metal valves, size ST 235 85R16. The tire dealership said these tires are about the best we can buy and should be fine on our existing wheels. Would like to ask the "experts" on this forum for your opinions.
Thank you!

Make sure your wheels can take 110 psi. Some wheels have the load capacity and PSI rating stamped on the inside of the rim. Jayco keeps the work order build for all of their rigs they assemble, so if the stamp is not clear they might be able to let you know if the wheels are rated for 110 PSI. Be sure to get high pressure valve stems.

I just put Gladiator QR35'S G rated tires on my 2011 Eagle 365 BHS. $786.00 out the door. Anyone else have these tires. Local tire dealer said the farmers love them on their stock trailers.

Size-wise, you'll have <1" difference. One thing with the GY tires, is that GY will repay you for damages due to a tire failure not related to a road hazard. Of course, you =pay= for this up front, with higher prices. There is a Sailun G tire that's getting good reviews and cost a lot less. You do lose the "insurance" that GY is (mostly) willing to give you as Sailun won't cover damages, though they cost a lot less.

I have been running those Goodyears for a few years and absolutely love them. Tires and brakes -- the two essentials for peace of mind!

Here is a Goodyear link on those tires plus it has a link to a chart on tire pressure as it relates to load capacity. I have found it most helpful. All tires must be inflated to the same pressure based on the tire that carries the heaviest load.

Your stock rims are not rated for 110 they are only rated at 80 psi.

I just bought a new 2015 Eagle FLQS with Ranier 235 80 16 tires. Am I to assume the rims on my new rig are also only rated to 80psi? They probably all come out of the same bin. I am also considering the G614's. Otherwise I will look to the Maxxis 8008. 17.5" wheels are not an option as I have 6 bolt, not 8 bolt axels.

I just got these for my Octane .They are a step up in load range to E. My stock tires were D range. I hope this doesnt mean my rims are only rated for 65 psi.

My friend has a 2014 Jayco Eagle Premier 375bhxx he just put G's on his camper and before installing talked to Jayco about the wheels. His wheels were rated at 110 psi from the factory. So before throwing out the classic your wheels are not rated for 110 psi be cautious. I want to also point out you can search rv forums and read about tire failure after tire failure on junk ST tires. Wheel failures are few and far in between. I went with the Gladiators because they are rated at 95 psi and have a 81 mph speed rating. I personally would not own a GoodYear after loosing 3 on a two year old unit within a month. Gy replaced all 5 tires and repaired my camper. One month ago I found my new GY'S failing again upon inspection. I would go with Saliun or Gladiator. Gladiator's are 14 ply steel belt with a steel belt side wall.
