PSI rating of wheels

So I got my new load range D tires for my TT and have time now to get them mounted. I have read on here about being sure the wheels are strong enough for the higher load range. I expected to see a max PSI stamping on the wheels when I removed them. Nope it's not there but there is a max load of 1900 lbs. So how does that translate to what tire pressure I can run my new tires at? The old tires were rated at only 1760 lbs. and the new ones are rated at 2040 lbs.

Cold inflation on the new tires is 65 PSI, was 50 on the load range Cs I'm taking off.

I am thinking I can safely inflate them to about 60 and be near the wheel capacity of 1900. Or I can buy new wheels for about $300 which are rated at 2040 lbs. from the get go. I am leaning that way right now then I know where I stand tire and wheel wise.

Has anyone else gone through this?
