...and the tires are rated at 3750# @ 110psi, not 3960 @ 95 psi.

Do you have something in writing from them? No matter how I put it they wont give me a firm answer. Their official truck tire data book still has the only approved rim width for the G614 as 6.5".

The wheels are also rated to carry that weight. I fail to see what you are trying to say here.
The 3960# rims are a new design for the 3960# LRF polyester trailer tires.

What i get out of that is that 6.5" is the recomended width. Every tire has a recommended rim width, but most have a range of a half inch or more. I personally couldn't care less about goodyear recommending a 6.5" rim if i have 18 6" rims that im using.
Im using what i have.

You're right. Most rims do have a width size range. However, the G614 is a one of a kind tire and only has a single approved rim width, 6.5".

Other name brands are on the market and all have the same rim width as the G614.

Yes...please move on. That horse is beyond dead...
The only reason I would have had to buy new wheels is if the current ones weren't rated for more than 80 psi. And if I did buy new ones, I probably still would have gone with a 16 x 6 inch wheel...with the G614's.

This is correct. It's the recommended width. NOT THE ONLY WIDTH. 7" wide wheels would also be acceptable. No, I don't have it in writing and I could care less. They told me it was fine and I know it's fine. As to the horse thing....YEP on that too...LOL...

I'm with you. Every wheel I have ever checked has not had a PSI rating on it. Weight rating, maybe, but no maximum PSI. There is no way to translate the weight rating to a particular PSI, either, although many people will claim this to be the case.

I guess my T07's were the exception and not the rule. They were actually stamped with both. "3750 at 110 PSI" was on the back. The manufacturer's website said the same. T07BM | Sendel Wheels
