2014 Heartland Torque 325 Toy Hauler Tire Recommendation ST235/80R16


Ive been having tire blow outs and probably only have maybe 1500 miles on my trailer. It came with Power King ST235/80R16 E tires. I want to know if I can go up to the ST235/85R16 F or G rated tires with Provider G or Karrier F. My aluminum rims that came on the trailer have the following stamped on the back 832 NOB1 / ETO / 13 / C / L / M / T DOT / MAX LOAD / 8/3750 LBS 110 PSI / 6/3200 LBS 110 PSI / T07. Will these rims work with F or G rated tires or will I need to purchase new wheels as well and if so which aluminum rims will work? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The tire I would recommend for you is the part # TTWPRG235R16 that you referenced. The reason is because this tire has more than enouch capacity as it is a Load Range G and because unlike other trailer tires this once has a speed rating of 81 mph. Most trailer tires are only rated for 65 which if you exceed the rating you end up causing the tire to heat up and potentially fail. This is a big reason for tire failure.

Your wheels have the same psi rating as this tire at 110 psi so you would be fine. Be sure to keep the tire at this figure to ensure you get the full weight rating for the tire.
