16 inch aluminum wheel rated for 100+psi

OEM wheel (rated for 80 psi) leaking. I am running G rated tires and need to replace wheels. Know where to get such an animal?

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

This was the reason we went to 17.5" rims with H rated Goodyear G114 tires...120 psig.

I assume you have 16" rims with 8 lugs on 6.5" ???
You should probably be looking for 16" X 7" rims

16 inch Trailer Rims Wheels, Aluminum, Chrome, Steel, Painted, Galvanized, Custom Trailer Wheels

My trailer has 15" x 6" rims with 6 lugs on 5.5"
In my case I'm looking to upgrade to 16" x 7" rims so I can move up to LT tires.

Here's a good template for bolt patterns:

When we had our '88 Type B MH we broke two wheels rims, both on the passenger side rear. Turns out the chrome wheels were not certified to carry the weight of the rig. In fact NONE of the chrome wheels I found were. Finally ended up getting the Canadian factory to buy Alcoa wheels since it was illegal to import the vehicle into the US with substandard wheels.
OP, you might be in the same boat!

Tubes won't help the wheel rating. G rated tires are 110 psig....way too much for an 80 psig wheel

Regarding use of its G-rated G614 RST, Goodyear says:

Quote:
*This tire requires a special high load capacity wheel and high pressure tire valve. Consult wheel manufacturer for proper application.
A tube isn't going to compensate for an inadequately-rated wheel.

When I dismounted the tire, the wheel is rated for 110 psi...It had a pin hole in it......After contacting a dealer to buy a new wheel, I was told it had a lifetime warranty and they sent a replacment HD wheel and a return authorization to ship the damaged wheel back to them.

Here is where I got my 110 psi rated wheels. They are an OEM supplier to all trailer markets.
