Great price on tires $125 each with an upgrade in load rating from C -> D. What tire pressure would you use on these tires. The maximum psi is 65. My old tires were rated at 50psi and Forest River recommended using 50psi.

I am running the kumho's on my Vibe 6501. I run them at 60psi (max on the 205 tires is 69 according to the sidewall). This gives me some extra load capacity but they are not rock hard. my trailer only weights about 3400 lbs, so there is only 1500 lbs on each tire. The biggest difference I get now is my wife does not ask if I checked the tire pressure. the sidewall does not flex anyway near what the OE tires did. I know use the OE tires on different rims for winter storage.

I put on maxxis 8008 (my other were Carlisle) on mine in same size you have and upgraded from C to D range. I have put around 5,000 miles on them and noticed that the trailer tows better and tire don't flatten out like old ones did. As mentioned above, proper tire pressure is the best thing you can do with whatever you go with.
