Wheel limit

Just want to confirm that the 80 PSI Max stamped into the wheel is the limit for the air valve and not the wheel. I plan on putting F load rated ties on these wheels. They require 110 PSI.

Cheers

Wheels rated for 80PSI, But your rubber valve stems are good for only about 50PSI.

Drats, but thanks for the correction. I was hoping it wasn't so I could upgrade and go to F rated tires.

you can still upgrade to F tires - you will just need to upgrade the Valve stem at the same time
to either a High pressure stem or a Metal Valve stem that allows you to go to the higher pressure

No matter what tire the OP places on these rims he is still limited to 80PSI. So upgrading tires is a waste of money. He would be far better off upgrading to 7K axles and 17.5 inch tire/wheel package.

i thought F rated tires were 80 psi also just more ply then E rated - after looking they are 95 psi so i stand corrected

The F rated tires i was going to get were 110PSI.

Upgrading to better axles isn't in the budget this year - maybe next time.

On the other hand, maybe I can find a good set of used wheels that can take 110psi.

From the looks of that stem; I don't think it is a "rubber" 50 PSI stem. It looks to me like a metal stem with rubber grommet. They are high pressure stems rated at 100PSI. I have them on my camper as well. The ones I have are plain brass so you can they are "metal;" other than the color they look identical to these and are rated at 100 PSI.

I use a TPMS that was bending the rubber OEM stems at speed and causing leaks. The metal stem does not bend with the pressure caps on so; no leaks.

Those stems are rated for more than 80 PSI.
