Thanks, Glen. I'm not sure that's my wheels, but it did give me a kick in the pants.

Here's a picture of my wheels/tires:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/dougse...etaken-public/


I did some searches and found this:
Home Page - this seems like it was the start of a website. But one of the pictures from the homepage appears to be of my wheel. That gave me a name- Lionshead Lynx.

I then found that tire and more pictures other places:
16" 8 Lug Panther Silver HD Aluminum Trailer Wheel
15X5 865 Aluminum Wheel - Silver | SL513 | Nuera Trailer Parts

As far as I can tell, the maximum rating on these wheels is 3,960 lbs.

Which, looking back at your PDF appears that the maximum PSI would be at 110 psi. Which seems to indicate that these wheels are fine up to 110 psi.

Which then seems to indicate that the Goodyear G614 would give me added capacity at a lesser cost than changing wheels + tires.
Goodyear RV Tires – Tire Selector

I've also emailed the contact that I had at Lionshead from back when I had my warranty issue asking if she could identify my wheels. We'll see how that goes.

I do think I'm likely to either go with Goodyear G614 tires on these wheels or go whole hog on the 17.5" wheels and load range H tires.

PLUS- we are going to continue the camper diet and strive to shed more weight. Anyone need a kid or two?

Did miss something? Are you overweight or almost maxed out. I see you have less than 14,000# on the two axles (7,000 X 2). The rest of the weight is on the 5th wheel pin.
Just move all your adult beverages to the front closet and let the TV carry it.

In the individual wheel weights, one of my tires is maxed out and two others are very close (20 pounds shy).

And for moving stuff, short of sending it to the TV or basement- there's not a whole lot we can do. We are working on removing excess and are getting there slowly. But, I'd still like some breathing room on the tires.

Does anyone know what rims they used on 2012 Crusader? I would like to upgrade my tires and also would like to know what tire pressures the factory rims will withstand. Lots of good responses on this thread.

You need to reconsider this option. It must not have been a favorable decision.

Make a note to self so you will remember: DO NOT PUT A NAIL or BULGES IN TIRE.

Yeah, but when I did- the wife approved new tires. I just wish I had made a different choice at the time.

Here's what I received:
Quote:
The specs you have requested are attached, please just keep in mind that if you put a heavier tire on the wheel you will need to be sure to have a high pressure valve stem in the wheels.
Click on this attachment and then click on it again to see it full-screen:
Click image for larger version

Name:	LYNX SERIES-8H.jpg
Views:	141
Size:	271.7 KB
ID:	84304

So, it looks like I can go up to the 3960 lbs. and 110 psi of the Goodyears. Or swap the whole kit out for 17.5" wheels.

Decisions, decisions...

Tell her you need a new truck.

See how that works out for you.

You never know.

The BOSS told me I could start looking at new trucks.

She said I could look.

She didn't say anything about buying.

Yep- shoulda taken care of this while I could.

I'm now sitting on I-80/I-94 just inside of Indiana while waiting on "Hoosier Helpers" to come sit behind me so that I can change a flat tire on the camper. Thankfully it's on the passenger side and thankfully I made sure to buy a TPMS before this trip. It just saved my tush!
