I have a 2006 Bighorn 3400rl with aluminum rims. I would like to change from
an E rated tire to a G rated. I have looked on the back side of the rim but all it has is the load rating. Will the rims be able to handle a G rated tire?

Hi bruce,
Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and Family. I moved your post to a tire area, I am sure you will get lots of help here.

The 2008 aluminum wheels were rated for 110 psi tires.

Thanks for the quick response. We are also switching to 7000 lb axles to hopefully avoid trouble on the road. This is our first camper so this is all new to us.

Wise choices. You will be rewarded by peace of mind when on the road.
