I'm backing out of this thread. I cannot find any valid reason to worry about tires that are able to provide 1800# of load capacity per axle.

Maxxis tires are made in Thailand.

There are some 6 lug wheels now rated for 110 psi for the 3750 load capacity.
They are all steel (Chrome Mods) no aluminum are available.

I have been converting customers with 6 hole wheels to the Sailun G for over 6 months.

A brand or source for the wheels would be great.

I run f rated Carlisle tires at 85psi. Just got back from 2700 miles with my trailer. It pulled like a boss and no ill effects.

For the 20 bucks a tire difference it was a no brainier for me.

I think F is great for a trailer in the 10-11k range (loaded). More weight than that, I'm going to G...

That is exactly where my trailer is depending on the load out inside.

What are your wheels rated for, what weight and/or psi ?

80 or 85 psi. I can't remember now. I'm on the verge of needing different wheels. So far no issues. I've got waaayyyy more tire than needed. I also clip along at more than the average pace down the highway. Time is usually more important than fuel cost.

Zero issues and very little psi fluctuation as well. I am pretty anal about proper psi and inspections before every outing.

Is that the Carlisle radial trail?

I'm about 85% sure they are. The rv sits in a storage lot when not in use. I'll try to stop by there and validate.

That's them. I've been running them a couple of years now and have no complaints. They're wearing wonderfully but I'm going to start getting nervous after three years now, whether I need to be, or not. Haha.

These are also F rated on wheels that'll handle 85 PSI. They are slightly bigger in circumference than the tires most of these trailers come with, so check clearances before purchasing.

Mine fit the wheel wells well but they do run slightly closer together with tighter spaced axles, and you can't fit a standard X-Jack type chock between them, for example. I don't need/want one of those, so I didn't care, but I mention it for completeness.

If one of them ever picked up something long in the tread, I suppose it could damage the other tire. I'll take my chances on that.

I did have to remove and trim my fender skirts to fit. I can still use wheel chocks and have plenty of clearance from the bottom of the trailer and around them.
