The guys at trailertiresandwheels.com were very helpful with options for my trailer. I think heavier tires and wheels will have minimal load difference on the axles since the axles ride on the tires and wheels. The Dexter axles site states the load rating for the axles, tires and wheels are limited to the lowest of the three capacities.

On the trailer I had before this 5th wheel I went through 2 sets of Goodyear Marathons due to tread separation.

P25ct, Jayco admitted to installing the wrong axles. They do not know how it happened but they installed 6000 pound capacity instead of 7000 pound. They also gave me credit for the defective Tomax tires to go towards my upgraded tires and wheels.

I can tell you the Jayco factory rims on my 3 axle TH do NOT allow for the upgrade to the 120psi tires.

I wanted to make that change, and probably should have, but elected instead ($$) to keep the wheels and put on Maxis M8008 ST radials, E rated at 80psi for 3,420lbs. I too have the 6,000lb rated axles. I hoped that the extra 420lbs rated per tire over the axle would give me enough margin to at least keep the tires round and full of air.

So far (13,500 miles into a 15,000 mile trip) so good. The tires (which I check pressure on and inspect every day) look great.

HOWEVER, my next rig/upgrade will have 17.5" wheels and G114 H rated tires.

Just picked up the new 17.5 rims with G114 H rated Goodyears. My first impression at the freight dock when I saw them.. "WOW!" I'm used to looking at those E rated Towmax's. These are truly a truck radial in every respect. It's like a whole different ballpark. I HIGHLY recommend these for any 7k axle runners. I'll post pics when they're bolted on.

May I suggest anyone who does not want the expense of 17.5 wheels investigate the QR35 by Gladiator G rated 14 ply with steel belted sidewall. Just put them on my rig, and I'm transferring them to my new 377. They are rated at 3750lbs at 95 psi M speed rating. $786 out the door. Tire guy says farmers love them. I don't have any long term review for thr tire but can say the truck tires are warmer than the trailer tires after towing at 72 mph.

I got my 17.5s on Friday. I got the Sailun chinese tires. They are also a substantial upgrade from the stock Blowmax. Theses 17.5s are virtually the same size as the stock 16 inch wheels and tires. I will post pictures. The look, feel, and weight of these tires and wheels will make me feel much better about towing.
