And you all have a problem with something being pretty? I spend that much money on something, it bloody well better be pretty!

there is a selection of 3 or 4 wheel styles available in 17.5 and I got 7 spoke with gray inserts I think they look better than the originals.

I finally got motivated this morning to crawl under my Designer and see what info I could see on the wheels. I definitely saw a Max Load of 3,750 lbs and 110 psi max pressure.
"G" rated tires are definitely in my future. The "E" rated that came from Jayco are going away.

Ed,

Where did you see that as I looked at the wheels and saw a brand and made in China. Nothing about max load or max PSI

It was on the inside of one of the "spokes". There was something cast into every spoke I looked it and the max weight and psi was on one of them. The other spokes had various types of mold marks, etc. and who knows what they mean, but one of them had the info I was looking for. I would be happy to send a picture, but I doubt I can get one without taking the wheel off.

I have a question:

Does going from an E tire at 80 psi to a G at 110 change the ride characteristics of the RV?

It would seem that the stiffer sidewall of the G tire at 30 more psi would have a harsher ride than the E. Any bumps that could be absorbed by the E tire's flexing and not the G's would then be transferred to the other suspension parts. Or am I totally out to lunch on this? (This last question is rhetorical...no comment needed.)

Actually, that is a good question (the tire question, not the lunch one), one I wouldn't mind seeing answered.

I went from E to G rated tires on my fifth wheel. I did not notice any change in the ride of the trailer.
