I have found that the manufacturer did a great job standing by their product IF you take your rig to them. Dealer do not want to repair- only sell. That is where the money is for them.
I think if the dealer sold you G tires but not rims that would handle the inflation that is clearly a safety issue the dealer should know about.
1. A complaint to NHTSA on the sale of unsafe wheels is in order
2. A complaint to BBB on the sale of unsafe wheels is in order
3. Complaint to RV MFG about the dealer selling unsafe tire/wheel combinations.
