PDW wheels on on 2450RL
I am changing tires on my 2016 2450RL and I want to get a matching spare wheel so that I can do 5 tire rotations to help equalize tire wear over time plus i want a load range D tire.
Long story short on the backside of the rim its marked PDW for the brand name not Sendel or HiSpec as I suspected would be the case. The wheel looks from pictures to the the same as a S5 HiSpec or the T03 Sendel and the specs as cast on the back of the wheel is also the same for loading and so on.
My thoughts are to just purchase a wheel from Recstuff.com and ask them the difference between the wheels but I am betting they are the exact same from China.
Also the reason I am replacing the tires is that the trailer was purchased in May 2015 and the tires are only 2 1/2 is years old but they have 8k miles and the inside edges have worn on a couple of them and they are the cheap stuff. So I am tightening up the bearings as the locations of the wear have the bearings set looser than the ones that were wearing good and there is easily one flat on the castle nuts available and still some looseness.
Also tires will be 205 75R14 Carlisle HD load D tires. Yes the new tires will have a higher load rating by 140 lbs compared to the wheel ratings, but that is not an issue as the weight of the trailer on the axle and tires is less than the 1900 lb wheel rating. Also the pressure rating for the wheels is limited by the fill valve. Standard rubber is rated to 65 and the high pressure brass is rated to 100 and the wheel rating is called out to be limited by the valve pressure rating so 65 psi should not be an issue.
