I won't be home for a few days to check, but I believe my 16" wheels are 6 lug as are the G614's on the new rims. The 17.5" ones are 8 lug.

Hmmmm.....that's strange since the Dexter 7K and 8K axles are 8 lug. You had over 7K of tire rating with the ST tires, so I can't imagine that they wouldn't put at least 7K axles under the rig.

Further to above, 7K Dexter axles are 8 lug with 9/16" lug nut studs; 8K Dexter axles are 8 lug with 5/8" lug nut studs.

These tires are good for 3520 lbs each. Camper dry is 12988. Throw in a couple atv's, water, gas and essentials and I can see these tires will be at max load. Even taking off for the hitch loading, it's still a high load on these tires. Looked at the Michelin XPS Ribs and Goodyear G614's. Ribs won't get much better weight carrying but the 614's do. The 614's also require higher spec rims. Would be around 2500 for complete set with spare. So looks like I may be ordering the 614's soon.
On a side note, the new Fuzion's with the Chrome package will be coming with G rated tires. Is someone waking up in the camper industry?
I had the same size/tire on my Cyclone.... FYI my rims were stamped at 110 psi so that might allow you to go up a load range in tire without changing rims....

Not sure what options are available to you at that air pressure if yours are 110 psi also.....

Where would I find the stamp for 110psi? I'll see if my wife can check it out. Would save a bundle just having to buy only tires.

It's stamped right on the back of the rim on the spokes. Kind of hard to see but it's there. Mine too are 110 PSI so I was able to just go to load range G tires. There are 2-3 brands out there. I went with the Goodyear G614's and have over 5k miles on them. Others have had good experiences with other brands too. As with any product, you will have someone come along and post their negative experience but that will be the very vocal minority. People are much louder when posting on failures than when posting accolades for a product...

Ok, wife said they are 8 lug. Good. Then she gave me the load rating and psi. I said wait, that's the tire. She said yep. I said I needed the wheel psi. Anyways I'll check when I get home and go from there. (gotta love her) If they are 110psi, then may just swap tires now and see how they go. Then later on go to the 17.5's to get the higher load value.

On mine there was a sticker on the back of the rim easy to find especially when the wheel was off. After seeing and feeling the difference between the Towmax and commercial Bridgestone's I think you will be more than fine with a G rated tire on that rim if it is 110.psi.... I have 3 axels so LT tires are all I felt I needed after reading many reviews here and elsewhere... My OPINION

Ok, got home and checked. My rims are stamped 110psi and already have the higher pressure valve stems, So, after our Thanksgiving week trip, I'll look for some 614's to put on. Spare is a regular rim.

Looks like you are good to go! If you have metal stems you can also consider a tire pressure monitoring system. We had metal stems put in when going to 614's and bought a TST TPMS system. It monitors both pressure and temp. The pressure part is good in case you pick up a nail while traveling etc. The temp part is good as it could warn you of a dragging brake or bad bearing which could heat up a tire. Cheap insurance. There are other brands out there, but I really like the TST. The only one I'd stay away from is Hawks Heat TPMS. Poor quality and no customer support after the sale.
