Wheel psi rating?

Hi - We are scheduled to pick up our new 2017 Pinnacle 36 KPTS next Friday. It comes with the 235/85R/16 Load Range E Ranier tires (80 psi), which I plan to replace with Sailun Load Range G tires. Has anyone done this and kept the stock wheels for a Load Range G tire (110 psi)?

I think MagnoliaTom did this on his 377.

We did the upgrade to Sailun G's from GY Marathon E's (from factory) a few years ago. Our rims were/are 110 PSI from Jayco.

Might want to check your rims to make sure they are 110 PSI.

Will definitely check the rims when we change out the tires. Just looking for history of others doing the same upgrade to G rated tires. Thanks.

Problem?

What problem/issue is being addressed or fixed by going to a higher load rating tire? Is there a safety margin issue with the factory provided tires?

I did it with the 2016 Pinnacle 36FBTS I bought several months ago. Immediately replaced the Raniers with Goodyear G614s. I crawled under the unit and couldn't find the PSI, but the wheels were stamped 3750, which is the heavier wheel. Emailed Jayco customer service and never really got a positive answer except that the Goodyear tires were an option and mine didn't have them. Mine also came with the metal valve stems.

Schooner- When we upgraded to the Sailun's we had to buy new rims as the stock one's with the Rainier tires were only rated to 80 psi. I have noticed that the units that came in after ours had different rims on them but still had the Rainier tires. Your dealer or Jayco should be able to tell you what they are rated. Personally, I wouldn't take the chance of putting 125 psi tires on a rim rated @ 80. We bought ours from Trailer Tires and Wheels already mounted and balanced. The new rims are rated something like 4500 lbs.- a lot higher than the stock rims. Got to us in 3 days Fed-Ex.

Wheel Upgrade

Had to upgrade to a higher value rim, Jayco in there wisdom only put 80psi rims on, bit the bullet and got 17.5" rims from Trailer Tires & Wheels & Sailun tires from Kal Tire all wheels now balanced, look really good

Thanks

Thanks all for the feed back. I'll post a follow-up as to what rims came with the Pinnacle when we change out the tires.
