Rim Air Pressure Rating

Hi All! I'll try to make this short and to the point. A friend has a 2015 29UDQL5 and wants to upgrade his tires to the Goodyear G614's. He pulled one of this wheels off today and looked to see if the rim air pressure was marked on the rim and the only rating on it was the load rating at 5950# (If my memory is correct). They are 8 lug alloy wheels. He is going to change the valve stems to metal and has a TPMS. So, in saying all that, How does someone find out the air pressure rating or does he just upgrade to the new tires and stay within the load rating?

TIA for your INFO and Time.

I spoke with a wheel mfg. a while back and was told that they don't have a psi rating on the wheels. They will handle any tire pressure requirement up to the rated load.

The GY G614 requires a high pressure (110 psi) rim with steel bolt in valve stems. It's size is 16x6.5". That 6.5" rim width is the only width approved by GY.

Here is a reference.

That's one thing I like about the Sailun S637. It comes in a 6" width.

It may be marked on the rim somewhere, inside or outside. When all else fails call/email the rim manufacture.

I seem to remember a post a long time ago, possibly from one of the factory guys on here, that the XLRs all use the same high pressure rim, regardless of which tires are mounted on it. Not 100% certain, but maybe we could get a confirmation on that from BulletBob?

Define fail, please. A leak or did it disintegrate?
