Exclamation forestriver sandpiper sport wheels & tires

Has anyone had any problems with their 5th wheel toy hauler. I have a 05 sandpiper sport 37' it came with the aluminuim wheels. we had a blow out and when I looked at the wheel the wheel is rated for 80psi @ 3750lbs and the tires they used are hiway trooper LT 235/85/16 G made by greenball well those tires are rated for 110psi @ 3750 LBS be carefull because in order to acheive the 3750 LBS the tires need to be inflated to 110 Lbs and that will exceed the wheel max psi of 80. has anyone had any issues.

Welcome to the site. Thank you for this heads up. I have a Canadian Sport (All American Sport) with aluminum wheels. I lost 1 wheel when it was new due to improper tq. Make sure you re-torqe your lugs 4 or 5 times or untill the stop turning when you retorqe. As far as tires I have Highway Troopers, I had 1 side wall fail and it was replaced under warrenty. I don't know what the rims are rated for, and I can't go look right now. Where did you find this spec? Can you post a pic of your rims?

2000 Volvo 660 D12 425 hp 1550 torque 15 speed, Trailer Saver air ride hitch. 2006 Canadian Sport 385 RLTS 40'10" triple slide, triple axle 5'er toybox, 300 watts solar, 3000 watt inverter, Onan 5500 Marques Platnum. 1998 Polaris 300 Explorer 4X4 quad, 2003 Polaris 700 Sportsman 4X4 quad, 1994 Jeep YJ "TOAD" 3" lift 31" ProComp Mud Terrain tires
