Wheel psi rating on Columbus?

Anyone have an idea if the oem wheels on a Columbus will take 100 psi?

Looking into Goodyear G614 tires, but I think they are rated for 100 psi instead of 80 that the China bombs take......

If they are rated at 80, why would you risk tire failure by over-inflating them?

Don't know wheel spec but do you think the 100psi tire would make for a harsher ride on bumps and bounce stuff around in RV more than it already does? Usually more PSI is needed to handle heavier weight. The RV did not get any heavier did it? Are you are planning on being over GVW?

China tires = 80psi. Goodyear tires = 100psi. Question is can the aluminum wheels handle the increased pressure.

I would think inside the wheel would be magic numbers showing psi rating and manufacturing info.

They should be stamped in the inside of the wheel.

Yes, they can handle the pressure.
I recently looked at a Cedar Creek with the same rims. It had those GY LT tires from the factory and a GVWR of almost 16K.
As mentioned though, 100psi is a lot for your Columbus' weight.

Not really worried about running them on the Columbus, just way too many bad tires lately, and not risking tearing things up. On average, I see many more rv's on a daily basis than most of you. I did check the wheels, and they are stamped with manufacturer, weight rating, and style numbers, but no pressure rating.

I changed out the Chinese E rated junk on my last Sunnybrook for Goodyear G614s. Went from 80 PSI tires at nearly max load to 100 PSI with spare capacity. Never blew another tire. We have new 2014 Columbus 325RL and will change to G614s in a month. No damage from higher pressure tires (only a little stiffer) and no more damage when the junk blows up because the G614s are built right.
