What Is The PSI Rating Of Wheel In Kenda ST205/75R14 Wheel And Tire Combo AM32161?


On the Kendra Karrier #AM32161 tire and 8 spoke white wheel combination what is the maximum PSI rating on the rim? The tire has a 2200 lb rating at 75 PSI but the rim is rated at 2040 lbs and does not provide a maximum PSI rating for the rim. If the rim is not also rated at a least 75 PSI this combination would appear to be a mismatch.


Helpful Expert Reply:

Wheels such as the 14" wheel included in the Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 14" White Spoke Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range D # AM32161 do not have an air PSI rating. The limiting factor for the air PSI is the valve stem which in this case is designed to work with the 75 PSI rating of the preinstalled tire.

You are correct that the tire is rated for 160lbs more load than the wheel, but you will be limited to the lower 2040lb rating.

If you are needing more than that for your trailer then I recommend going with the Kenda Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Tire w/ 14" Series T09 Aluminum Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - LR D # AM34659 instead. The wheel included in this wheel and tire combination is rated for up to 2200lbs so you will be able to use the full load rating of the tire.

I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
