Tires on a Sabre 32RCTS

Can anyone out there tell me the make and load index on the 16 inch E rated tires that are supposed to come on this unit?


Thanks

David, are you referring to a load index number used on passenger tires....ie, 87, 88, 89 etc?

Light truck (LT) and Special Trailer (ST) tires use a Load Range letter which is E in your tire above.

A Load Range E (which is 10 ply rated) varies depending on the size (and can a little on brand):

Common sizes in Load Range E:

LT 235/85R16 = 3042 pounds
LT 225/75R16 = 2680 pounds

ST 235/85R16 = 3640 pounds
ST 235/80R16 = 3420 pounds

Tires & Axels

I guess I am trying to find out exactly which tires (size), manufacturer and load rating are standard on the Sabre 32RCTS. I know they are 16inch "E" but that is all I know. I just want to make sure they are up to the task or negotiate something with my dealer. The GVWR of this rig is 13,890 and the rig has 6,000 lb axles so that does not compute for me. 7,000 lb axles are a $856.00 option. Is there any cause for concern regarding the Axles?

Any additional info is appreciated

Thank you


David

thats becuase theres almost 2000 lbs on the pin is why it doesnt compute.


13890 - 2000= 11890 2-6000 lb axles= 12000

Actually, 2000 pin weight should be absolute minimum. It's normally going to be more like 2500, and could be 3450, so Turbs is right: 6000 is enough.

I wonder why they give you an option for higher rated axles. It's like they're saying "We think the 6000's are ok, but we're not sure." Either they are or they aren't!

We've got a 2012 32RCTS. It's in storage so I can't give you the specific tire size. They are 16's and the brand is Akuret.

By the way, congrats on your "soon to be yours" Sabre. We love ours, hope you enjoy yours.

that camper has almost 4000 lbs of capacity as well !
I think youd be hard pressed to add 4000 lbs to it as normal average user added weight is about a 1000 plus any dealer add ons like propane tanks/propane, battery and such.

sabre uses a 10" NON fabricated I beam which is one reason I purchased it.

Axles & Tires

Hence my confusion about the axle. I don't know why there is a 7,000 pound option either.

In my unscientific opinion - I'd opt for the upgraded axles, even if you aren't carrying the extra weight. I'd rather have beefier parts carrying the stuff than less beefy parts. Not that there's anything wrong with the 6k axles. It's cheap to add now - I see little to no reason not to do it. (I've been wrong before, though!)

Davidcedar,
I found out from a very reliable source that the 7k axles are NOT an option for the 32 rcts.
You cannot even order them to be put on.
The 36qbok and anyother 36 models are the only ones to get that option.
Your dealer is mistaken that they can be ordered as an option.

^^^ the order form that I last saw said that the 7k axles can only be ordered on specific models. But I don't know which it says.

The 36qbok is the only model that the 7k axles can be ordered for.
