Do you mean that if I can't find it on the back of the rim I will have to remove a tire to find out?

Yes.
Or have a tire shop do it for you.

Actually this was discussed at length in some thread here. I think it said there there may be no marking on some aluminum wheels and you just have to find them on the manufacturer's website to find out what the rating is.

Lloydg, I found mine by the web site of the rim. Mine had a www. web address on it. Then it went by the bolts and spokes if I remember right. I do think it is the law that the manufacturer stamp the max PSI somewhere on the rim. I remember Herk's was stamped on the rim but his was steel rims. If I remember right. most of the time an alloy rim will be on the inside. here is a web site for mine but yours might be different but you will get an idea. www.series06.com it will explane the PSI by bolt and spoke pattern. just click on the link. Hope it helps you

Bottom line, to answer your question, if your rims are rated for 50# and you inflate to 65 or 70, you are risking a rim failure which could mean it just splits if it is a steel rim. There is no doubt a safety factor built into the rims, but, "it's not nice to fool Mother Nature". If it is an alum wheel they could just break and IMO would be more dangerous as the break would no doubt involve pieces of the rim being propelled like a grenade. If you have the 15" 06 alum wheels, they are rated for 65# so you can go to a LR D tire.

Thanks OC I think that is the original question to begin with, It's about time you chimed in. I would never inflate mine to 80 lbs PSI for that reason. and went with the Marathon D rating. Hope your traveling is going okay...... I'm still in this ice box they call Virginia...

Was 24 when we left Concord yesterday morning, got to Daytona and it was only 74, was expecting at least 76+.
