There is another Tire Post going on now that Members (Swear Up & Down that F/R gave them (300$) to upgrade their RV Tires! Hell I would give that for F/R to put (Maxxis 8008 Tires) on at the Factory! I still would take them off and have Balanced! Youroo!!

I suppose I might pay $300 for a higher load range tire upgrade, but Maxxis "brand" just for brand sake ... nope.

When time comes to upgrade my Westlakes I would likely get upgraded Goodyear Marathons (next load range up) and they are made in China, but I don't care. not too many options on my trailer as my axles are close together so I need to keep the same OD on the tire while going up in load capacity.

Changing tires to Load D from C, do I have to change my rim?

Just bought a Super Lite 5th (8528 IKWS), have the Trail Express Load C in 225/75/15. Going to the Maxxis 8008, same size but in a load D. The C's max inflation is 50psi, while the new tires in Load D call for 65.

So my Sumic 5 bolt wheels (15x6JJ) have 50 psi checked on the trailer sticker on the outside of the trailier. So I am hoping they can handle the higher pressure. I didn't go with Load E's, as I knew that the wheels probably couldn't handle 80psi.

I'm not going to call the dealer, as too much of the info I have received is plain wrong!

Until folks that trailer quit driving fast, loading too much, and not running correct pressures, also using tow vehicles that can t handle good amount of pin weight to keep OE tires at around 80% of max....and storing vehicle that does not have TP at max or a little more....using outdated tires...not replacing both tire when a flat happens while matter what is on there you will get the boom.....and for those who use tires greater than OE that have higher pressure and more ply will get the bounce and start complaining about broken glasses and bad cabinets....and bent frames......I watched my friend maxxis blow while going over at RR track at 15 mph.
Course who ever says he drove the posted speed limit plus on interstates.....If we just change our human behavior maybe there won t be so many tire post on this forum....that way we can talk about campfires and good wine to drink....bottom I am in favor of a tire option at purchase, but before going bigger look into reason a lower tire pressure and less ply might be interstate 10 in La... then we can talk about bounce......
