Aluminum Wheel PSI Fit with Tires Requiring 110 PSI


here is my problem i have an 5th wheel toy hauler and my tires keep blowing out i do not want byes ply tires and need to go with a 14 ply all steel tire how ever my rims on my camper wont take the 110 lbs of tire pressure. how do i tell on your web site what the max pressure on the rims are


Expert Reply:

Trailer wheels like the Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel - 16" x 7" Rim - 8 on 6-1/2 - Silver # LHJM513 you referenced are not rated for a psi. Many wheel assemblies come with a valve stem rated for 65 psi or 80 psi at most. However, when a wheel like the one you asked the question from mentions a high pressure metal valve stem is included, this means that wheel will have a stem similar to # AM20906. This will hold the 110 lbs you referenced.

For your compatible tires, I recommend the Westlake ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # LHWL410. These radial tires are rated for 4,400 lbs each at 110 psi. They are rated for speeds of up to 75 mph and have a 5 year warranty with complimentary roadside assistance 24/7 for 2 years. This will protect you and serve you if you have any issues, but these combinations will serve you very well as long as you are within the capacities of the tires.
