I appreciate everyone's opinion and suggestion for concern.
That's why I started the thread here.

In looking at the Sailuns, I see they are 6.5" width. My rims are 6". The Carlisles are 6". I may have to go with them.

One could surmise that the tire dealer who mounts the tires may have a liability issue.

Never mind, I took another look and see the checkmark in the box signifying front and rear only.

I've e had the Sailuns on my montana for over 2 years and 12,000 miles with no problems. My weight is 16,200 pounds loaded with 3480 pounds of that on the hitch.This averages to 3,180 pounds per tire which i'm sure isn't exactly right per tire because some tires or either more or less.

Yeah thats just another folly of blindly following a minimum pressure number from a mfg chart. Doing so will leave other tires under pressured and all tire subject to ply shear problems some where later down the road as the tire ages or becomes high mileage.

It's a generic label used by both tandem and tri-axle and as you saw, only 2 boxes checked.

I confirmed the Sailun 6.5" will have no problem on the 6.0" rim.

dogpatch,
With all the BS about safety and government regulations, just put the Saliuns on and pump them up to 85psi and don't look back. Don't worry about the 6" vs 6.5", or the 80 psi max rims. Make sure that you keep an eye out for cracks though, and if you have a wheel failure, change all of them, then go with the 6.5" and 110Psi Rims.

Thanks Frank. That's what I've already decided to do!

Everyone knows that the biggest downfall of tires is heat. It's better to get the 110 psi wheels so that you can inflate to the max of 110 psi.All rv's are considered loaded and even though you might not be at maximum weight per tire, it's better to have a safety margin and the tires will always run cooler at max psi . The wear on the tires is negligible if the tires don't wear as well at 110 psi compared to 85psi as you will most likely have the tires time-out before they wear out. If someone travels just short distances for camping then it probably want matter so much about the max or minimum psi but i travel long distances on my travels so the cooler the tires the safer the tires. Safe travels.

Shelbytexan,
If you return to the start of this topic, you will see that his rims are not rated for the 110 psi. They are rated at 80 I believe so that is why he is running them near the capacity of the rims. It's not necessarily about the tires as he has select what is the best choice for him and losing the ability to air up to 110. He has said that his tire dealer and sailen are OK with this and the dealer will install them understanding the restrictions.

AGREE. Idon't run less than 110 psi on all my tires. Heat build up will eventually cause tire failure if you travel in extreme heat during the summer.Ihave been lucky so far as to not have any tire problems but people running less than max pressure are asking for the number 1 problem with tires which is low air pressure that causes heat build-up then tire failure.I wonder how many people have had tires come apart and think it had to do with a defective tire when all it was -was because of low tire pressure through there own neglect .
