air pressure max

Hey all! Been lurking here for over a year.... finally registered and am posting for the first time.
Proud owner of a Jay Flight 23MDS and getting ready for a cross-county trip come Sept. (Clovis, Ca. to Williamsburg, Va). Have the usual China bomb load range C tires (205 75R 15) and feel the need to upgrade quality & load range before heading out. The question...... what is max air pressure the stock rims can take (can't find the info anywhere on the rim. Tire pressure max is 50psi). Going to go with the new Goodyear Endurance. Thinking if I need to purchase new rims will outfit the rig so I can jump to load range E. Any thoughts or info?

I just made the move from C's to the Goodyear Endurance D's with no rim issues 205/75/14's

The D's are 65PSI and rated to 81 mph (I never go over 65 mph) and have a load capacity of 2039/tire X 4 = 8,156lbs

My GVWR was 7500lbs so felt the D's more than adequate. Looks like your 23MDS GVWR is 7,700lbs so the D's should be plenty but then personal comfort zone is always a factor so if you think you need the E's I'd never argue against more than needed.

Load range e are going to ride rougher on a lighter trailer like yours. Since the psi is so high it's going to jar and vibrate your trailer more when traveling down the road which could cause future issues. In my opinion d's would be plenty for the weight of your trailer

I agree with Farnik - I went up one load range from D to E on my trailer. I don't think I'd be comfortable going up 2 levels.
