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.


Let's try this one more time.

What the tires are RATED AT makes no difference.
What pressure are you ACTUALLY USING in them ??

If your load has not increased, you should NOT be upping the pressure just because the new tires could handle that if they needed to with extra weight.

YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE INCREASED THE PRESSURE JUST BECAUSE YOU PUT ON DIFFERENT TIRES. DID YOU DO THAT ??

Rob, I was thinking that 15" E tires had a rating > 3k lbs, but that was for the 16s on my truck. At 2830 rating on your rims, they'll handle E tires at the full 80 psi. FWIW, both the Carlisle HD and the Endurance are 2833 lbs capacity in E rating.

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


And just so everyone understands: The term "ply" is used incorrectly.

Officially these tires are Load Range D and E. The obsolete term "Ply Rating" is sometimes used, but it is confusing because modern tires don't have 8 or 10 actual plies - which is why it was replaced - and it is even more confusing when the word "rating" is left out.

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


Good advice.

BTW: ignore the recommendation for Goodyear Endurance.

Most 15" 6 lug trailer wheels today come rated for 80 psi unlike our older 15" trailer wheels that came in several lower psi ratings ie; 50 psi....65 psi.

A 15" load E tire is a good upgrade choice for a 15" 6 lug wheel.

Never over pressure a wheel or tire when carrying a load.
