RE: Need new tires

The wheels are cast aluminum with only a 6 lug pattern. The tires are ST 225/70R-15 load range D. The lines I posted above are cast into the back side of the spokes. I have continued looking and have found a chart that references the lower of the 2 tire max weights as load range C @ 50 psi. I have also seen references to the upper weight as load range E @ 80 psi. Is there a reason why they put both on the wheel? Is it a from/to rating? I did go to the local Discount Tire and all that kid could do is punch numbers into a computer. The choices around here for tires are Discount Tire, Wal-Mart and Firestone.

Need new tires

Need to replace the 5 year old tires on my TT and need some advice about upgrading. The trailer is 38 feet and has a GVWR of #9975 and currently has Load Range D tires from the trailer manufacturer. I want to upgrade to Load Range E for a little extra comfort level (no extra weight) but do not know if the rims are suitable for the additional pressure. I pulled a tire and looked on the back of the rim for some sort of psi marking, but nothing that simple to be found. The rim has 5 spokes and these are what what on the spokes: 1) Tire max load #2150 2) Tire max load #2830 3) A960 15x6J 4) 5H-1143 and 6H-1397 5) Made in Taiwan Around the center ring there were several QA stamps and the letters DOT-T ET0 I have tried researching the numbers on the 4th spoke and found nothing related to rims. I am a little confused as to why the rim would have 2 Tire max load markings. Any advice on these rims or do I need to bite the bullet and get some new rims to go with the tires? Thanks in advance Ken
