New Tire Purchase

I have a 2015 Jayco Whitehawk 24RKS with the original tires (Rainer ST 205/75R14 load range C. I would like to get quality tires and have looked at the following:
Costco Greenball Towmaster 8 Ply, load range D at $61.99 each
Carlisle 8 ply tires at 90.00 each

One concern is does anyone know if my stock rims are rated for 8-Ply tires with a load range of D or should I stick with 6 ply load limit C.

Any recommendations would be helpful. I have NEVER had any problems with RV tires (knock on wood)however want quality tires since I will usually have family members with me. The majority of our towing is in central California where it can get pretty hot.

Thank you for any comments or assistance.

I had to call Jayco and they said for my trailer they bought a tire and wheel kit from tredit tire. They were very helpful and could tell me exactly what rims I had just by the picture and the description (that comes from your your sticker). So first call Jayco to see where they sourced your wheels from.

I just completed a 700 mile trip with my new Goodyear Endurance tires, Load Range D, and I did notice a smoother ride and much less sway when passed by semi trucks. They replaced my Load C Rainers that came on the trailer and were less than 2 years old. Much more peace of mind and no more worrying about a Chinese bomb going off.

For me it was money well spent.

I went thru replacing tires on our 26BH last year. The wheels that shipped from the factory all had a model/manufacturers' (Dexstar) sticker on them but the only one legible was the spare...the tire cover on it saved it from fading. I contacted Dexstar and the confirmed the model I had would take a load range D at the max.

I should have said earlier that I planned on going with the Goodyear endurance but I was focusing on if your rims were good enough for the d range which is what I was concerned with.

You have to watch Goodyear. Some of their Endurance tires only come in load range E, it just depends on their size....I ran into that with that with a 15" tire.
