Will Trailer Tire With Larger Capacity Fit 2,830 lb Capacity of Dexstar Trailer Wheel AM20560


Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 15 x 6 Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 - Black. I have recently ordered Load G 14-ply tires off Amazon to put on these size rims. Your rims here are rated to 2830 lbs a piece however the Load G exceeds 3000 lbs. Would this rim, including an appropriate valve stem be compatible with G Load tires? Thank you

So with this question you're asking a couple different things (so please bear with me because there isn't a direct yes/no answer). The first thing to note is that the tires you ordered from one of our competitors has a load rating of more than 3,000 lbs, but the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 - Black # AM20560 has a 2,830 lbs capacity and you always have to go by the lowest-rated capacity. That means this tire and wheel combo will have a 2,830 lbs capacity no matter what because there isn't a way to upgrade the capacity of the wheel.

The other aspect of this is fit, and that depends on the tire as it needs to be 15" diameter and designed to fit a 6" wide wheel. There are no 15" trailer tires that are that have a load capacity higher than E, which has a max capacity of 2,830 lbs such as the Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # AM10303.

I'm not certain what tires you ordered which makes a recommendation difficult but if you have a hub with a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern and are looking for black trailer wheels and tires that have a load rating over 3,000 lbs I recommend checking out the Kenda Karrier ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Black Mod Wheel - 6 on 5-1/2 # AM34834 which has a 3,050 lb capacity.

I have added links to video reviews of these parts as well as links to a couple help articles on trailer tires which I recommend checking out.
