Should be stamped on the inside of the rim.

Sometimes it is. Most times it is not.

Checked inside, outside and on the hub. Made in China and js30 was all I could find. Put Carlisle 235/80/R16 LR E on. Max tire PSI of 95 was added. That was marked on the tire, read where it was max PSI 80. Next tires will be Carlisle 235/85/R16 LR F as they call for the same 95#.

Mine was stamped on the backside of the spokes of the wheel. I couldn't ever find it when they were on the trailer.

So, based on my experience with these trailers and dozens of different tires (wife wife swears we buy tires every year) I would recommend the following:

E Loads - Bridgestone Duravis R250 235/85/16
G Loads - Sailun S637 235/80/16

Again, just my opinion, but consider cost, quality, and durability those are the only tires I would consider at this point. The big Goodyear G's are great tires, but with the Sailun's hovering around half the cost per tire the Goodyears are hard to justify.

Carlisle 235/85/r16 LR F T $104 installed seemed even better to me. Hard to find a lot of complaints with those either. Also, handled by more dealers.

The R250 does not qualify for replacing the OPs tires because of their lower load capacity.

Didn't see the OP list a weight, just saw some assumptions made. My 365SAQ came with 6k axles from the factory, not 6750, 6000. Besides, I'd trust a Bridgestone that is rated 100# light to a generously rated Tow Master any day. I put 5000 miles on a set of Duravis tires under my 365SAQ with 0 issues before we found a bent axle and swapped for 7k axles. After the swap the West Lakes came out and Sailuns went in.... life is good.

It's a tire industry standard safety standard. For you to do is OK because it's your safety. To persuade others to do it infringes on their safety standards, knowingly or unknowingly.

There are other options that that will keep the vehicle inside of the ring of safety.

Listen.... I prefaced with "in my experience" and "just my opinion".... futhermore OP never did specify a weight, some folks made assumptions.

The LT/ST debate has gone on forever. No one is pursuading anyone to do anything.... just sharing my experiences and opinions like everyone else on here so relax.

The point of a public forum is for folks to share opinions and experiences so that others may form their own opinions and have their own experiences to share.

In my experience (there's that disclaimer again), The train wreck of a trailer and average QC standards at FR have done more to jeopardize the OPs safety than my sharing of tire experiences ever will, sirs.
