Did either of you have to get new rims?

As I have stated several times, I wouldn't pull a camper off the dealer's lot with the LR C factory tires. They may be load rated more than the axles, but the axles will slowly bend if overloaded or mistreated with minor damage to anything but the tires, excluding burnt brgs, etc. whereas a tire blowing will cause major instantaneous damage.

Researching Tire Options for Wildwood 231

yup the rims i got are rated for over 2000lbs also to handle the higher pressure u need the metal valve stems, when i had discount install them they put in the metal valve stem, i also bought the certificate for replacement tires since it was so cheap, take a look at some of my other posts, i show pics of my new tires and rims and also what type of rims and where i got them from, the rims were around $75 each, overall very happy

I hear you, it's not so much whether we get new tires but what kind specific to our rv trailer. The forums contain so much info and sorting through it can be overwhelming but we pretty much figured that new tires are in order

Yep, we currently have the standard white wheel and I figured we'd probably need new rims as well as metal valves

I personally like and have used Goodyear Marathons for over 40 years with not one problem. If LR D are available in your size, that's what I would buy.
