Yes, I did confirm that size as well...

Anyone with 235/80R16 that can confirm the speed rating. They do look like decent enough tires and I will run them a year or 2 before switching.

Jim34RL did your trailer come with the 235/85R16's?

Those tires were standard on my 2016, 34RL Cedar Creek. The placard informs you to inflate them to 110psi for maximum load carrying ability. I believe there may be different tire ratings in the same tire size class. As I have 126R rated tires on my truck for towing and another manufacture offers the same tire size, but in a E rated tire.

Mike thanks for getting that info.

Jim from what I have heard from a couple people with FR is that the Columbus comes with the E rated tires. Sounds like they are also 75mph rated so that will give a good safety margin.
