Trailer Tire and Wheel Recommendation for Size ST235/85-16 for Trailer Weighing 14.5k


Hi, I have a 2006 Fleetwood Gearbox Toy Hauler that needs new tires and wheelsdual axle. I lost a tread on one of my tires last time out, and I need to upgrade everything as the wheels are starting to rust and show signs of age. My gvwr is 14,500 on the trailer and we run it pretty much fully loaded when we go out riding. Anyway, I have 235/80R16 on there with 6-5.5inch lug EZ-Lube axles. I was wanting to go to a G rated tire in the same size and put them on Item # AM22658HWTB. I read that the valve stem should be a bolt in one that is rated for at least 110 psi. Which valve stem do you recommend? Please help put my mind at ease as I keep going round and round of what I should do. Thanks,

Best option we have that is similar to the wheel part # AM22658HWTB that you referenced will be the part # LHAXSO513B. Here's why:

This comes with the tire mounted to the wheel with a properly rated valve stem already.
The weight rating for the wheel and tire is 4,080-lb max load at 110 psi which is more than you'd need for the weight of your trailer.
The speed rating of the tire is 75 mph which is higher than what most trailer tires have so you don't have to worry about exceeding the rating and overheating the tire.
This comes with a 2 year roadside assistance program.

This is a larger tire size that what you mentioned at 235/85-16 as the size you have now does not have a high enough rated option.
