For your replacement tires, I recommend the Taskmaster Contender ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # C23516E. These tires are rated for 3,520 lbs at 80 psi and have a speed rating of up to 81 mph. These are really nice tires at a great price point.

Since you are traveling cross-country, you may want to consider the Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # LHWL401 with a weight rating of 3520 lbs at 80 psi and a speed rating of up to 75 mph. The thing that really sets these tires apart is their warranty. They come with a 5 year warranty and 2 year roadside assistance which includes flat tire service 24/7 anywhere in the US, Canada, or Puerto Rico.

I have Carlisle g rated st235/80r16 on a dual axle fifth wheel at gvwr of 16k what pressure should I run these at 80841

Reply from Chris R.

We don't carry Carlisle tires but based on the ST235/80R16 G rated tires we do have you're looking at a max psi of 110, which is what you want to keep them filled at. I would also try to verify this by checking the max psi listed on the tire's sidewall. 66554
