Tire question

I had a tire seperate during a trip and had to replace it. I decided to upgrade to an 8ply. After getting home I realized it has an inflation capacity of 65psi versus the other 3 (6ply) which are 50psi. Is this a problem? Should I replace the other tire on the same side or the same axle on the opposite side to balance things out?

IMO, you should match tires on an axle if at all possible (except in an emergency). You should match inflation for sure (even though it is capable of 65PSI you don't need that much air for your load). In fact if you check your spare you may find your rim is only capable of 50 PSI in any case.
The extra plys of the D rated tires are a good thing. Just put an identical one on the other side of the axle. Keep the C rated "good tire" as a spare.
