The DOT does not require specifications for rims to be displayed on the rim. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) are the overseers of rim specifications. The DOT does require rim manufacturers to identify themselves on all rims they manufacturer and certify for highway service. If an owner cannot get the specs from the retailer the next stop is to ask the rim manufacturer. The rim manufacturer, model, size and serial number information will be on the rim.

Yea...so?
Still does not answer my original question, but honestly, I don't care. I'll click off notifications.

When I had my Windjammer, I went from load "C" to "D" tires. I had the same question as the OP. I contacted LionsHead the supplier of my rims. They told me that my rims were rated for 50 psi, but if I went to a metal valve stem, I could go up to 80 psi. The rubber valve stems was the reason for the 50 psi limit. I had the fancy 15" aluminum rims.

I Have a set of four 17X8" steel wheels with 265 70's mounted and air to 65 PSI with rubber valve stems.

My question is will this be a problem when I get them warm-hot?

I appreciate all the responses but can't help think I still don't have a clear answer. Since the manufacturer of the wheels isn't obvious I may just need to contact forest river.

I did the same as you. If you have the steel rims they will work great at 65 PSI. There is a load rating for the steel wheel stamped on the inside. As long as you don't exceed that weight on the wheel you will be fine.
