Wheel rating ?

I recently purchased a 2009 Carriage Cameo 33CKQ. It currently has E rated tires on it. I am seriously thinking of putting Goodyear G614 "G" rated tires on it. My question is, how can I find out if the wheels I have can handle that tire and pressure?
Any help is appreciated.
Ron

The tire pressure capacity of my trailer wheels are stamped on the inside of each wheel.

Sorry, what I am trying to ask is how can you tell if your metal wheels can handle the greater carrying capacity of the tires I am trying to choose.?

Same trailer, same weight carried by wheel, you just have a tire that would carry more weight which this capacity is based on tire pressure . As was said in earlier post, it's all on the inside of the rim which is a lame place for the info.

Most RV Trailer wheels provided as OEM will have a weight & pressure rating molded somewhere on the wheel. It's not a requirement, just something the OEM provider asks the wheel manufacturer to do. There are two methods found with wheel load and pressure specs. Some have a weight limit and will support any PSI needed for the tire to provide that load. Other wheel manufacturers will have both a weight limit and PSI limit.

The only valid answer to get when the information is not on the wheel is to ask the wheel manufacturer. According to NHTSA regulations they are supposed to provide that information on request.

Remember, valve stems also have pressure ratings.

Wheels MUST have a load rating that will support the vehicle's certified GAWRs and a pressure rating that will equal the tire's maximum recommended cold inflation PSI.

On the back/inside of the wheel. You should see it stamped in there.

Ron, I put Goodyear G614s on my 2008 Cameo 32SB2 8 yrs ago and have bee very pleased. I had to demount a tire to verify that it was rated to 110 psi, which it was (alloy rims). Capacity is stamped inside the rim.

It would be best to know real life weights for individual tire positions and axles - I would think that the G 614s would give you plenty of capacity, but my recommendation falls into the ‘good to know’ category. I run at 100 psi based on the load tables.

Good luck with the Cameo.

I remember looking into wheel ratings a couple of years ago. What I found was that, as a general rule, wheels are rated for the highest pressure of a tire that can be mounted on it. If you have a 14" wheel, it's probably rated for a "D" rated tire, since it's extremely difficult to get a higher rating on a 14" tire. 18" wheels, on the other hand, can mount at least an "E" rated tire, possibly higher, so those wheels are rated accordingly higher.


There are some oddball wheels for specialty applications, but that's what I found to be the general rule. If you can readily find tires for the wheel, it can handle it.

I have a 2008 Cameo with the aluminum rims and run the Sailun S637 ST235/85/R16 tires that are G rated. I have been running these tires for 1-1/2 years now and 15k miles. They have held up very well, I use 105 cold PSI and seem to have even wear across the thread.
Picture shows damage from the Hartland G tires I ran that were 3 years old prior to the Sailun tires.

My wheels (rims) look like yours. I want to thank everyone for their help. I am getting ready to replace my tires so I wanted to make sure my trims could handle the extra pressure.
