need 14 inch rims rated for 65 psi,,,


My tire dealer has ordered new Kumho 857 205/14R tires for our camper. Problem is my OE rims are rated for 50 psi.

So...do you know a source for 14 in. rims that will accept 65 psi.? Obviously they exist as Kumho makes the 14 in. tire which requires such a rim.

I've spent two days searching ....including calling Kumho in California and they didn' t know crap. Area Kumho dealers are clueless as well.

Etrailer is a great source for most things relating to trailers.
Here is their page for 14" wheels: Wheel Only 14 Inch 5 on 4-1/2 Inch Tires and Wheels | etrailer.com
It looks like 65psi is no problem with the "fancier" wheels.

One word of caution, however. If I remember correctly, the AM20305 wheels I bought were stamped 60psi, not 65psi. I called etrailer and (again, if I remember correctly), they said not to worry about it, they can handle the 65psi. But I do worry about it and keep the tires at 60psi - with my 2500 lb EggCamper, that isn't a problem. With a trailer approaching 4000 lbs you might want to call and discuss it with etrailer before ordering.

Well heck!

I already ordered them based upon the information on their site which states 65 psi. That is misleading of them if they advertise 65 and are stamped 60.

I think that I will need the 65 psi. on our camper. I did notice on their site that they suggest it being O.K. to run 65 psi. in a wheel rated for 60. But I thought that I was buying what was advertised. I ordered the 20305.
