Surveyor SV264 Maximum rim PSI?

Has anyone upgraded their tires to a higher load ratings on the 14" rims that came with the Anniversary Select Series? I can't see a max PSI stamped anywhere on the rim and would like to go to a "D" rated tire. If they are only rated for a "C" at 50 PSI , putting 65 PSI in them would be 30% over. That scares me a little. Anyone done it or know?

This is something I would like to know to, it surprises me that there is nothing stamped on the rim I thought that was mandatory.

I couldn't find it on my rim, either. I have only had one off, so far, but will be replacing all my bearings and seals in a couple of months. Maybe I can find it then. I didn't like the blacked out aluminum wheels when I bought mine. The dealer swapped them for the wheels I did like because another buyer at the time had the opposite wheel taste. I'll be watching... Not sure what company(s) makes aluminum wheels for RVs... I'd like to upgrade my tires, too.

I have a Surveyor 235 and went from C rated to D rated 14" tires. I would recommend the Kumho 857 by the way. My rims are steel and are rated at 60 psi. I checked into aluminum rims that are made specifically for trailering and they were also rated at 60 psi. So, I run 56 pounds in my Kumho's.

RADIAL 857 - Kumho Tire USA, Inc.

This is an 82 aspect ratio tire vs the 75 aspect ratio of your 205/75/14 C's. So, you would need to go to a 195/82/14 Kumho to get the same circumference. Even though a smaller size, it has substantially more capacity than the C's. It also has the advantage of being rated for 99 mph. You have to watch circumference because the axles are close together on the Surveyor. We only have 2" between our tires.

I've run Kumho's on two other trailers with great results. That's what I plan to go with in a "D" rating. If my rims won't take it, I'll go with the "C" rated Maxxis.
The rims are the factory OEM spokes. They may be stamped on the inside but I forgot to check when I had my steel valve stems put on.

You don't need to run the full 65 lbs to get capacity benefit from the D's.
