will our rims handle load e vs d tires?

I have a 30hds hyperlite. Tires are st225/75 r15 load d. Will the rims handle load range e tires? I will not overload camper just want the extra margin for long trips...

The rims will take any tire that is sized correctly. However, the ride will be a bit rougher with the stiffer sidewall on the E tire. Since you're not riding in the trailer your backside won't care but the items inside might move around a bit more.

Hi I went to Discount tire and bought Carlisle load range E ST tires from them for $509 balanced and new heavy duty valve steams. The tt I just traded in with the Carlisle tires had around 10,000 miles on them with no problems. Carlisle is the only manufacture that has a speed rating of 87 miles per hour. The rest are 60 or 65 or no rating for speed. I had Carlisle load rage E on my last tt and was very happy with them. I did not and will not air the tires up to there full working pressure of 80 psi. I aired them up to 70 psi. The rims are rated for 65 psi from what I have read on past posts so that put the pressure within less than 10% over there rating. The old tt I ran at 65 psi but this was a lighter tt also. What ever you buy make sure you are buying a tire with the newest born on date.

Hope this helps Tim

The max pressure that the wheel is rated for is stamped on the inside of the wheel. If I recall load range D run at 65 PSI and load range E run at 80 PSI. If you are talking about a TT here it may be easier to read the wheel for the spare tire. Just make sure that the wheels are able to handle the increases pressure that the upped load range tires are designed for.

Your wheels have their own weight capacity rating as well as your tires. Your combined wheel/tire's weight capacity will be the lesser of these two ratings.

P.S. This is the LEGAL answer.

The rims are most likely stamped on the inside; usually the weight capacity notair pressure or tire rating.

Inside meaning you have to remove the tire from the wheel to see it?
I'm assuming so because I don't see any numbers on my wheels.
