Could be anywhere between the hub & wheel surface. Depends on wheel manufacturer. It's a stamping or casting.

Are the G614s LT or ST?

At max 3,200lbs, those have to be LR-E wheels. By comparison, Sailun LR-G tires are rated to carry 4,020lbs at 110psi. I think you'll find the GYs are similar in LR-G.

GY614's are G rated tires at (according to the salesman at the GY store) 14 ply however, reading the info in the sidewall, I came up with 10. Maybe I missed something or misunderstood.

The Goodyear G614 RST tire is unique. It comes in a single size, LT235/85R16G. It is a steel cased regroveable tire for trailer service only. It requires a single rim size (16x6.5") for high pressure tires. The rim width of 6.5" is the only width Goodyear publishes for the G614.

I'm not a tire expert, so I called Goodyear this morning. I asked about the suitability of the G614 tires on a 16x6 wheel. The technical person I spoke with said that GY recommended 6.5" wheels, but the tire would work with 6"-7.5" wheels. Also, when I study GY's load inflation table, it appears that I do not need 110 psi, but that 90-95 psi would be the right pressure for my fiver.

My goal with the G614's is getting a reliable tire that I can have confidence will not go boom on the interstate at 8pm in the rain. I have virtually zero confidence in these Chinese tires we all get stuck with when buying a new trailer. I never leave home without verifying that my tires have 80 psi in them, yet I have changed many of them alongside the highway.....some with just a few hundred miles on them. The passenger side can be difficult due to narrow shoulders, but change a drivers side tire when inconsiderate drivers are racing a foot or so from your Heinee at 80 mph. Sure makes for exciting times.
I hate the damn china bombs with a passion....ugh

I always wondered how to spell that.

Discovery is fascinating. I had sent an email to Goodyear just prior to calling them in regards to rim width for the G614 tires. The verbal response I got was just as I shared above, however, the written (email) response is just as one would expect, and just as Airdale stated. 6.5" only.

So, now, along with $1500 worth of tires, I would need to purchase $800 in rims. Does this S*!%# ever end? LoL

I bit the bullet and put the G614's on my new Cardinal 3250. The Marathons had about 500 miles on them. Painful to spend the money plus I changed the spare as well. I figured better safe than sorry!
