Hello from Indiana!
I have a question about tires, just purchased a used travel trailer, the tires have been upgraded from a C to E rating. The placard on trailer says 50# air for a C tire. The maximum air on the E rating on tire is 80# . My question is how much air should I put in my tires? Thanks Mike

If the rims are rated for it I would go with what the tire says. This way you have the load capacity that the tires are rated for (up to the trailers rating of course) .

Welcome to the forum. The rim rating can either be found on the back side of the rim or the other place is inside the rim which mean you have to dismount the tire. Later RJD

If the rims don't have metal stems, have them put in.
