Do you have an optional tires sized ST235/85R16F offer with your trailer?

Those tires are rated at 3960# @ 95 PSI.

have you looked at the backs of your wheels? Mine were stamped on the back of a spoke giving the max weights.

Went to Discount Tire today to get the G614's installed. Had them take a tire/wheel off so I could look on the back and sure enough...Max 110 lbs. Came home with 4 new G614's. Feel much more confident. I could not believe the weight difference in the tires. I already feel better about what I am riding on.

I would recommend that no one keep their original tires that are China Bombs. I waited to long and had a delmination on one of the POS that came with our 5er. We now have Michelin XPS....no complaints.

Good call you won't regret it. Don't just go blindly running 110 lbs. Weigh your rig each tire preferably. Use the weight/inflation chart and add 5psi to what the chart says. This is per GY Tech Support for when you are upping to the next load rating. If you ran 80 most like 85 will be the correct amount. I went form "E" to "G" on my 32.5' Avion pulled thousands of miles with perfect tread wear. If you run 110psi you will beat your RV to death and have less stopping power.

I just replaced the china bombs on our 2 week old Cougar 5th wheel... No we are not made of money,,, but after much reading and research I went with Maxxis,,, M8008 10 ply to replace the D rated 8 ply china things... These are 15" wheels so I was a little limited,, but feel much better now.... (in my mind,,, time will tell in the middle of NM or AZ)

Looks like your a year late by the link you posted. Maybe there is a new promotion for 2016?

I have a 2011 Elkridge and it came factory with 235/80/16. They have been good to us. We got about 30K miles out of them, one trip to Alaska, about 17K round trip. No issues. Next set were Crosswinds, 12 ply, nothing but problems with them. I just put on (March 30, 2016) 4 new Towmax 235/80/16. Got them on Ebay $309 for all 4 no tax or shipping. Best deal around. I looked at getting LT tires, but that means changing wheels.
