385BHS rim PSI and replacement tire search

Hi I have a question. I have not found a definitive answer. It concerns The rims that came on my unit. I do not know, nor can I find what kind of PSI they can take. . I am doing research to find out what tires I can upgrade to and the first question I run into every time is "what PSI can your rims withstand?" I would like to find a non "china bomb" solution for my tires. I assume they are 7,000 pound axles. How can E rated tires hold all the weight? I was thinking of upgrading to F or G rated tires. To do this I would have to change the 235-80-16 tires on there now for 235-85-16 tires (i think) which are the size that F or G rated tires come in. I hope there is enough clearance without bumping or rubbing the frame with the 235-85-16 tires. I do not want blow outs and from what I have read it is just a matter of time before my Chinese E rated tires blow out. If I knew what the PSI of the rims were, I could better know what tire to upgrade to. Thanks I have read over 87 threads tonight and can't seem to find out exactly.
