No. They only come with the standard rubber stems made to handle up to 80 psi. My jackleg dealership didn't tell the tire shop to do it after I reminded them a few days before pick-up. Then, of course, I forgot to check to make sure they were metal stems at the PDI.

When we got home (276 miles away), I discovered the screw up a few days afterwards. When I called them, they talked to the tire dealer who told them they were the rubber high pressure stems. NOT. My G rated tires only had about 70 psi in them and when I pumped them up to 95, you could wiggle the stem slightly and air would come out around the seal. They were about to bust.

I took the camper to a local heavy truck shop and had them remove each tire and install all new metal stems. Took about an hour.

High pressure metal stems are cheap. Maybe $5 or less per stem.

By the way. That's the same wheels as mine. On the back is stamped in small print the PSI rating and load rating.

Just FYI. My 40D12 with the golf cart, all our "stuff", and a full tank of generator fuel weighs maybe 18,000 lbs. or less. We really don't carry water.

I just wanted the G614s for the peace of mind and the speed rating.

What's wrong with the Constance brand shown in picture?

Here's the picture of the wheel. Do they already have metal valve stems, I didn't pay attention.

We can't see the stems in that picture.

So I assume their are 3 axles? I'd likely go for Sailuns or Goodyear (G614 not Marathons).

Hercules tires

I replaced all of my cheap C rated Chinese tires with Hercules E rated tires and they are made in the U.S.A.

I found some s637 Sailun for great price but they have 235/80 and 235/85, should I stick with the factory size 80's or go with the taller size 85's which are the same specs other than 1 inch taller which also raises the trailer height. I figure the 235/80 will be little bit lighter, height will stay same plus little bit cheaper

My G614s are 235/85/16. The height isn't a problem. Plenty of clearance between tires, too. The angle of the ramp is probably a little steeper but the golf cart goes up there with no problem. It sits perfectly hooked up to the truck so all in all, I'm pretty happy with the set-up.
