China tires are not the problems

I read that you have issues with Goodyear tires since they are made in china! Well being made in china should not be your issue as most are today, the issues are much more involved then being made in china and here is a link to the tireman how should be able to shed some real info into your tire needs.

I keep seeing threads about China Bombs and upgrading from a C to a D or E load range? Question I have is do you have to be concerned with is this, my tt has a sticker with vitals in it that has tire inflation at 50 lbs. I googled the Duro 225/75 tires and the 50 lbs is what is stated for the tire. The class D tire states that 65 lbs is the right lbs and 90 for the class E. I am guess if you upgrade you run the the inflation rate, if so is there a concern of the wheel handling the new rate, especially the E which is almost double the C? How do you tell the pressure capacity of the wheels? I do like the extra carrying weight, but then again is there a issue with axles capacity? Will sneak up on some scales some day, have been comfortable with the 1600 cargo capacity of the Flagstaff. Do not carry much water in tanks, fresh or waste, kinda foolish I think to haul water and its weight. Thanks for the reply?
