You should really give the Maxxis 8008's a hard look. I am going on 3 years on mine. I moved up to a E from the factory D's. Just a bit more cushion for peace of mind. Good luck, John

I looked at the new Carlisle 16" F rated. They certainly look beefier and the largest 2 do indeed have ST in their model number. I see they have recommended PSI of 95 vs. my Maxxis' 80 psi. But I could not find anywhere that Carlisle supports 87mph. No matter, its only 75 mph on very smooth freeways that would come into play. Unless you travel the Austin Texas east side toll way where the limit is 85mph.

Exact same tire, same size and same rims I have.

OP-If you buy new rims they should be s "Zero Offset" That puts the load between the bearings. Trailertire and wheels have good pricing on rims and will sell you any brand. Good company to deal with and good prices.

Hankook RA08 in 195R14 is exact size as ST205. But it is load range D, 8 ply, 99 mph speed rated and carries 2100# @65psi. Great tires but I have only had them for 8 months and only a few thousand miles, but I have a lot more piece of mind now..

Make sure the new rims can take any higher tire pressure. Tires discussed are in 90/100 lbs range and check the number of lugs. If you go to 8 lugs to need to change the hubs.

wheel and tires

My original tires had to be 65PSI if I change to Carlisle LRE They require 80 PSI will my wheel accept this new pressure?
Have a Crusader 290RLT

Crawl under RV and look at back of the rim, it will have max psi stamped on back of rim.

Claude002: I am doing the exact same thing as you as I have a 290 RLT and am looking to upgrade. I have also been looking at the Maxxis tires, is there any particular reason you are going with the Carlisle tire? The Carlisle also look to be a very good tire. Keep me posted on your rim issue, I wiull be looking at my rims tomorrow.
