FYI - if you're looking at 16" tires, our 5th wheel came with the Goodyear Unisteel G614 RST in a LT235/85R-16G (G-rated) size/load rating. These tires are rated 3750 lbs @ 110 PSIG, and the wheels are rated for these tires. I don't know who the wheel vendor is, but if you need some 3750 lb 16" wheels, they're out there somewhere!

Rusty
now 3750 is a good rated wheel !
A fair amount of us have 6000 pound rated axles which pegs each of its wheels at 3000. But the trailer is only rated for 15,000 and 6 wheels @ 3000 each (if 3 axles) gives 18,000 pounds of protection.

But my big concern with ToyHauling is that we can put large toys in the back upon occaision, and it can be hard to PERFECTLY center that load (weight-wise).
And then add to that the complexities of bouncing down the rugged off-road.
And then add to that the fact that a lot have 4x4's that are (by need) lifted a couple inches , can be hard to keep the trailer level,....
... and it can really be hard to keep that large weight in back perfectly loaded over the tires.
So i tend to think that a little overkill on the wheels and tires will compensate for our varying loads we put on the trailer.

So am I happy with 2500 pound wheels with carlysle tires?

Happy with a 3750 pound wheel with some nicely rated Michelins or Goodyears?

A lot of bucks though.

Anyone towing heavy over real funky terrain?

Rusty & Wes:

Thanks much for the info...I found the rims, but haven't checked into the tires yet...maybe I outta do that before I go hog-wild on rim buying. But I know I will defintely go with at least "E"'s- anything will be better than what I've got now. I will be carrying a Jeep, so I need to keep that in mind also.

and Mikey: sure would be nice if we had some way to measure the weight distribution, eh? I bet we can rob some 757 of it's weight computer and install on a WW, huh? (You know of any 'spare' Boeing 757's in your neighborhood?)

Mike and Sean,

The tires Rusty was talking about are what is on my Alfa. I don't know if you got a chance to look at them or not. 93 lbs per tire and rim, heavy duty and look like they will last a long time.

Good to see you today Sean!!!

Clark

are those rims rated at 3040# the highest rated rims you are finding?
Mike </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Mike,

I found a Chrome 16", 6 on 5.5 steel rim with 3,500 lb. capacity HERE.

I saw this article on the "other" forum, and thought everyone would be interested.

Sean, I posted there web site on page 1 of this thread. My tire guy (parkhouse) told me that most trailer manuf use them for there O.E. rims and tires. They also have alum rims rated at 3200lbs. I'm running the xps ribs on my trailer now going on three years... tough as nails. Other nice thing about the xps rib, you really dont have to worry about a side wall puncture (rock) due to the steel belt's in the side wall . BB

BB:

Well yes you did- all one line of it! That's probably why I didn't see it!

I just got tired of trying to access their pages...about 5 minutes for the first and second, then...aaauuuggghhh!! I think I'll try again later...can people purchase right from them? Or do they have dealers? I didn't see any pricing- not that I didn't try- so maybe dealers only?

And I think I will go for the XPS tires...heard ALOT of good about them.

and Clarkie Baby: Thanks for dropping by! Good to see you too!!

Sean,

Greenball is wholesale only. They provided a phone number for retail customers to call to find a local dealer.

Long Beach, CA (310) 669-2626

10-4!! will do...I am alot farther away from Wes in doing this deed, but, likewise, am very interested in the outcome...I know Wes will share- he's really good at that- call him a 'seasoned professional'!!

Sean and wes, called my tire guy today to get a price for you. He called greenball and was told they were out of stock on the alum mod rims. Thought they would have a 0 deg offset, rated for 3200lbs and pricing would be about 70-75ea. He was going to do some checking around and get back to me. I'll let you know when I know. BB

Thanks for the help BB, That's really nice of you, but I bought my new rims today.

They are U.S. Wheel Chrome Modular part #97-7760.

The specs are, 16x7 6x5.5 with a 4" backset and 0 offset. They are rated at 3,300 lbs.

Also, the WW caps fit, so they should look factory installed.



Now for the tires. Most likely I will get the Michelin XPS Rib 235/85 16 E rated tires.

Wes

ON EDIT: Don't buy these wheels for your coach, they're only rated to 2,200 lb. they lied to me.
