Hello
Any issues going from d range 8 ply 65 psi to 10 ply 80 psi, on the stock rims on my rockwood 8281ws? Thanks

Crawl under the trailer with a flash light and a rag. Look at the back side of your rims for a max inflation stamp.

No problem with higher load range tires......but why do you think you need extra pressure ??

That number on the sidewall is NOT a recommendation for any particular application.

NO issue IMHO, as you should be running nearly the same air pressure as with the "D" tires.

I highly recommend GY ENDURANCE.

Unless it's stamped in the valley, which means that a tire would have to be dismounted to check.

No issues that I can see as long as rims can handle the additional psi, did the same thing many moons ago, really nice to have more safety margin.

I have a Forest River 5th wheel. The cousin to the Rockwood. It has the Aluminum rims and they are stamped "Maximum load 2830 pounds", the same as what's stamped on my new tires, but no mention of maximum pressure they can handle. I recently did just what you are wanting to do. I got rid of the **** D rated China tires and bought E rated Goodyear Endurance tires and I'm now rated to 87 mph and max cold inflation is 80 psi. I've seen 90 psi when traveling when the tires are hot. I don't have a lot of miles on them (about 400 miles so far) and I've had no issue at all.

AFAIK, at that weight rating, you have D-rated rims and would need to upgrade them to run full E-rated pressure.

The trailer’s original equipment wheels were used on your trailer because they will support the maximum load of the vehicle certified axles. Tires mounted on them with excess load capacity are just providing load capacity reserves. The wheels are not in danger for the tire excess load capacity unless the trailer axles are overloaded.

You need to insure the replacement tires are a compatible fitment to the OE wheels. Some wheels will have their maximum load capacity displayed somewhere on the wheel. Wheels marked like that will support a tire PSI pressure needed to meet the wheel’s maximum load capacity. Some wheels will have certified load and PSI values. When that is the case the PSI value cannot be higher than the wheel’s cold recommendation.

Wheel rim width MUST be compatible with the replacement tires acceptable width range. Valve stem PSI ratings are often overlooked when using replacement tires with higher recommended PSI values.

I inquired about this when buying the tires. The tire place with 100 years of existence and a staff with a lot of experience said they were putting in reinforced valve stems to handle the increased PSI. My old tires were rated for 65 PSI. My new ones are 80 PSI. I was told I'm just fine with what I did.
