Stock 3200 Max Wheel PSI?

I've searched all over the web and can't find a clear answer so I'll post here and see what I get.

I'm still running the factory China tires, but am looking at moving to the Goodyear G614 RST in the near future. China tires are still good and have low miles but are getting aged. I'm coming up on the 4 year old mark.

My stock 3200 wheels are marked HD 3950 lbs. Does this mean they are rated for 110 psi? From the max weight rating for G rated tires I'm pretty sure 110 psi is ok, but I can't find anything that confirms it.

I called High spec wheel company a little while back and if it's the 8 spoke 16" wheel they are rated for the solid valve stem fail point of 200psi... so 110-120 is a breeze for them.

That's the ones I have. Now all I need is to convince myself to let go of the $1300 4 of the G614 RST will cost.

Yeah, I know, opinions are like ******, everybody's got one

But . . . why not consider any of the ALL-STEEL (AS) 235/85/16 G-rated tires by Sailun, Gladiator, or Hartland (America's Tire/Discount Tire house brand)? With not much effort dealin' online or at AT/DT, you can get a set of 4 for $650-$750. Make sure they're the ALL-STEEL versions, and not the polyester sidewall versions.

These AS 235/85/16 G-rated tires weigh 60 lbs. Most E-rated 235/80/16 tires only weigh 37-39 lbs. When you pick up each of these tires the weight difference is dramatic.

The AS Sailuns have a stellar reputation on every RV forum I've visited. To my knowledge there hasn't been any documented failures of AS tires . . . however, there have been reported failures of the GS614's. I've been told GY may repair damage caused by a GS614 blowout---whether that's worth double the cost is your call.

I put a set of four AS 235/85/16 Hartlands on my Voltage TH for $670 out the door, balanced, mounted, with 4-steel valve stems. They're load rated at 4080 lbs. at 110 PSI and speed rated N/87 MPH(**)---higher than the GS614's and Sailuns. You can typically get four Sailuns shipped to your door for $600.

Good luck with whatever you choose!

(**) The AT/DT website has them incorrectly listed as M/81 MPH. In reality they're N/87 MPH.

That's what I went with... but the difference is outstanding... trailer doesn't even think of swaying and sits a little more level and tires are extremely solid and heavy with no sidewall bulge.

This is a good option for me to consider. I have a few months to make a decision as the Toyhauler is stored for the winter. BTW -- Goodyear specs on the G614 have them speed rated at 106 mph (R)

Yup, your're absolutely correct. Had the Goodyear Marathons in mind when I typed that.
