What is the inflation pressure limit for 15" steel wheels?

Trailer came with load range C tires and steel wheels. Does anybody know what the pressure limit is for these wheels? I have it in my mind that I have seen that the wheel is limited to 50 PSI ?

The limit for load range C tires is 50 psi. The wheels may be more, and may be stamped on them.

Thanks. It is the wheels I am asking about. Guess I will have to take one off and look at it close. Can I put D's on the steel wheels and run them at 65 psi?

All tires will have molded in the sidewall the tire pressure max for the tire, your airstream, as all vehicles, have the spec tires required and pressure to set the tires at for the rig or play Russian Roulette with your life.

It just depends on the wheel originally spec'ed. You will have to inspect one of the wheels closely. The max spec may be on the inside of the rim.
