Our steel rims do not have a pressure rating; just a load rating (in pounds).

You can buy the parts yourself from Forest River. Call the parts dept at 574-642-8926.

Goodyear Marathon vs Carlisle

On out last trip to Alabama we experienced 4 blow outs on the same series of tire (Trail Express) manufactured in China. I have had bad luck with the Marathon tire also and decided to go back with the Carlisle ST225/75/R15 117N E1 on our rig.

Purchased these tires from Discount Tire Direct (800-707-8473) (discounttiredirect) and got a great deal with free shipping. The tires were manufactured in 2015.

Good luck

Main concern is to not exceed the load rating of the wheels.

I have heard it said that it is possible to exceed the psi rating and probably not get failure but exceeding the load rating is almost certain to fail the wheel.

What tire air pressures are you all following. The one on the sticker on the side of the trailer or the max rating on the tires themselves? I have been going by the recommended air pressure shown on the sticker on the trailer. Haven't had any problems just not sure if it is luck or not....

My Carlisle "e" 's. Trailer sticker rated 50lb. Tires rated for 80. My Discount Tire guy said stay at 50 but I run cold 60. Pushing the boundaries. No problems after about 3000 miles using these parameters.

Goodyear Marathon vs Carlisle Radial Trail RH

I run 65 in my 80 psi tires because my wheel rim is stamped max load 2540 which I take to mean 65 psi. My actual load is a little under 2000 lbs per tire. I have over 12,000 miles on these tires at 62-65 psi. Another 4K trip starting next month. My original tires were 'C' rated so my sticker is 50 psi.
