Tire Replacement???

I searched the forum and didn't find anything regarding this situation specifically so I apologize if I'm duplicating conversations...

I had my first blow out today and am going to replace all 4 tires with Goodyear endurance. Upon my search for my OME tires, size ST 225/75 R15 load range C max psi 50, I could only find the endurance load range E with max psi 80. To get to load range D, the tire size is 205/75 R15 load range D max psi 65. (I realize there are other tire manufacturers with same tire sizes and load range but I want to buy a better set of tires).

My question is...will I be ok using the load range E tire? Will my rims handle the psi pressure? I looked on the back of my aluminum rims for any psi ratings and couldn't find any. All I could see was a max weight of 2150.

Any advice you can give me would be appreciated. My next trip out is in a week and I'm told by tire shops around here that I have to order them online and have them installed as they don't carry a lot of trailer tires.

There is a huge amount of information on this subject, here. I just bought that tire in the load range E at Discount Tire and I could not be more happy. There was even another TT there, doing the same. The TT feels nice and smooth on the highway. The 15" tire was one of the reasons we selected this model from Surveyor.

p.s. I asked the same questions from several tire dealers; all said no problem.
They all said the LR E tires is supposed be at 80 psi to keep the sidewalls firm.

If you're not sure of your rim's pressure rating, you CAN use the Load Range E tires, but inflate them to only 65 PSI. Use metal stems if you can.

Then, use the weight-carrying specs for Load Range D tires of that size.

Or buy all new rims that CAN handle 80 PSI, and go with the carrying specs for L/R E's.

Get the load range E. That is what I do with my Maxxis. Just fill them to what this table says for the load you are carrying.

See if any dealers carry the Maxxis. They are proven(been out longer than 18 months) and most dealers can get them quick. My boat trailer and TT have Maxxis on them.

That 2150# - orange above - is probably for a 5 lug/bolt hole wheel. Is that what you have? OEM wheels may have more than one rating on them. Does it read 5/2150? What does the certification label read for GAWR?
