To the OP, why do you feel that you need to upgrade from E to F load tires. The E tire load rating most likely exceeds the axle load rating.

Dave - The various E rated tires I'm finding are rated anywhere from 2900 to 3025lbs. I agree E tires should be fine but after brushing up on trailer tires, and their faults, I thought I'd go up one rating to get a more durable tire even though I wouldn't be taking advantage of the extra load capacity.

Since my wheels are capable of over 80psi it appears that idea isn't going to happen. But, now that I'm looking at E tires most of them are 90 to 95psi! I might have to get new wheels anyway.

When you mention E rated tires at 90 to 95 psi inflation, I think you're referring to F load range tires. E load tires are 80 psi max.

Out of curosity, what are your axles rated for?

I know on ours, the tires barely exceed the axle load ratings...axles are 4000 lbs, tires are 2150 lbs each. The actual, scaled total axle weight is 7060 lbs., therefore I think I have sufficient margin.

The most important thing is to keep the camper tires fully inflated to the max pressure and visual inspection every chance you'll get.

You're right...haven't ever seen load range E tires rated higher than 80 psi. Always learning something new...

Thanks,
Dave
