I have a Eagle TT replaced the Goodyear Marathon with Carlise E rated tires. All the difference in the world, also won't exceed their capacity. Bad thing still made in CHINA.
As long as your rims are rated @ 80LBS you can run E rated tires.

Safe trips & Happy Camping

I think the G614's are rated at 110psi max so you'd have to have a wheel to support that. Most travel trailer rims are only rated to handle 80psi max, so that may be the limiting factor. Unsure about 5th wheel rims.

TCNASHVILLE is correct. The OEM wheels are rated for 80 psi max.

If you think it's fun to have a blowout with one of these sorry foreign tires just imagine how much additional fun it is to have the disintegrating tire do $5,000.00 plus damage to your trailer, too. Top that off with the tire manufacturer (Dynamic Tire Corp.) not accepting any responsibility including honoring the tire warranty. That was our experience when the tires were a little over a year old.

Get rid of those foreign made bombs and bite the bullet for some G614's or something comparable. Then let Jayco know BY LETTER what you think of their policy of putting this dangerous junk on their high end trailers. If they hear enough backlash they might be moved to change...or at least offer an upgrade.

Yes! This is why I have a TPMS. It alerted me to both tire failures and I had no damage.

My stock rims are max capacity of 3580. They have a stamp on the back. The trailertiresandwheels.com guy said they are also probably only rated for 80 PSI. Since I need to upgrade the rims, I am going to 17.5 inch lynx rims with 215/75 R 17.5 Sailun tires. They are chinese but are load range H and have a 4800 pound capacity rather than 3520 that the Tomax has. They are also rated for 75 miles ler hour, Towmax 65. I ussually cruise around 62, the 75 mph rating should make them run cooler. I just found out today, Jayco installed the wrong axles. They installed 6000 pound capacity not 7000. They are going to replace the axles but I am on my own for tires and wheels. Before this fifthwheel I had a TT and went through eight Goodyear marathon tires due to tread separation. I switched to an off brand chinese tire and the tread separation problem went away. I would have paid for a Jayco tire and wheel upgrade if I knew you could get one.

The sailun tires with a 4800 pound capacity run at 120 PSI. The package deal I got is 415.00 per tire and wheel assembly.

Are your rims 8-lug? If so I think they will be rated at 100#. If they are 6-lug then probably 80#. There's lots of real knowledgeable folks on this forum, I'm sure someone will chime in to set me right or wrong.

They are 8 lug with a max capacity rating of 3580 pounds. There is no PSI rating that I could find. I told the trailertiresandwheels.com guy the capacity rating and he said they are probably 80 PSI wheels.
