Rims are stamped 110 psi.
Inflated to 95 psi.

In true FR fashion.... There were extra parts included!! Lol.

Tires haven't had the number of "ply" since early 60's with the introduction of higher strength body cord materials. "Load Range" is proper terminology.

If you were hanging from a clif which would rather have 10 cords each with breaking strength of 18# or one cord with breaking strength of 300#

Un-inflated tire sidewall stiffness is essentially meaningless measure of tire strength, ride or puncture resistance.

I write a blog on RV tire application and safety.
Also give seminars on tires at RV events across the US. 40 years experience as tire design & quality engineer for major tire mfg. Freelander 23QB on Chevy chassis is my RV

Uh huh...

The load range e tires were labeled 10 ply.

The new Samson tires were labeled 14 ply.

I sat my 300lb butt on the Samson and barely made a dent.
That tells more than enough.

Ill bet the sidewall on a LRE has something like this on it with the PR meaning ply rating.

This is a sidewall description. All tires have this type of information.

Yes I had Constancy on my Sabre and after a couple of trips swapped them out for Maxxis. Also heard good things about the Samson

I just did the Goodyear G614 upgrade on my 2016 Sandpiper 365SAQB. Didnt want to chance it. Piece of mind for sure.
