I don't know either but my guess is that if you still have the factory tires then whatever your tire rating is, that would be the wheels also. However, if it is a steel wheel I don't think I'd worry about going up one rating. Just like mine are 65psi and going to an E rated at 80 doesn't bother me, maybe it should but it doesn't. The tires hot are up to 75 or so anyway.

That is my thinking too. I think the risk of crappy d range tires coming apart is greater than a steel wheel failing with a few more PSI.

Don't know if I made a mistake or not yet, but I went ahead and got the Marathons. The biggest reason was I had a brand new one as a spare and wanted 5 matched tires, and didn't want to eat the new one. I will be keeping a close eye on the Goodyears, will see how they do after an Arizona summer.

look on the hub side of your wheel, if they are alum its stamped on one of the webs or the near the bolt hub on the non street side of the wheel
mine are 3200 lbs at 80psi

and i just found a great deal on four MIch Lt265/75r16 with a load of 3415 @80, for 753 plus four 50 dollar mail in rebates.
now i am good till i find some higher capacity wheels

I assume you were directing this to me, if so: I tried diligently to find a rating. These are factory wheels off my 2001, there are no ratings stamped on the inside or out, I looked several times on several wheels while I had them off of the trailer. It is a moot point now though since I stuck with load range D tires.


Good luck Tom, hopefully we never find out which tire is better, that will have meant that one of us had issues.

I had a titan tire, load range E, It blew in 60 degree weather going 62 mph and way under loaded. Running 78 lbs pressure. Six months old and looked like new.

In short, don't purchase it or them unless it is all you can get to get you home.
