Tireman9, if you see this my Hi Spec rims are stamped at 3460# Will these rims handle the 110 psi of the Sailun? I really wanted the 80's to keep my existing tires at least as a spare. The search continues.
As I understand this it is the load that is the real concern for wheels.

My trailer came with LRC trail express tires rated at 2050 per tire. My trailer unloaded has 7500 on the wheels. Not much margin there

My Maxxis LRD are 2540 per wheel

I towed the trailer 110 miles last weekend. Ambient temp was 86 and I only saw 90 on the Tpms

I replaced a full set of blowouts with Maxxis M8008 and haven't looked back. I couldn't ask for a better tire. Just returned from a 2,000+ mile through the mountains and they felt great, All temps and pressures were stable on the TST 507 system. IMHE, I highly recommend them.
