Max air pressure for dif wheels

The po of my Avion installed trailer wheels,you know the white spoked ones, and I am curious if they can handle a tire inflated to 80 psi? What is the max air pressure forAS wheels and how can one tell what it is? Thanks, jim

The wheels have nothing to do with tire pressure. 80 psi is too much.
The recommended psi will be on the tire sidewall.
I think my tires are 60 or 65 maximum inflation pressure. I keep them on 60 psi- no lower than 50 pai.

I did not ask about tire pressures. Some E rated tires are run at 80 psi. There is a max air pressure for AS wheels, I just cannot remember what it is or how to get the info. I know Aftermarket wheels have a rating, I am sure AS has a max for theirs. Might be good info for some who are putting dif tires on their AS wheels and using other than AS recommended pressures. I have aftermarket wheels and was just wondering if anyone knew of info for max pressure. Is it stamped into the wheel on the inside? Jim

E rated tires can be run as high as 80 lbs, which a few people do. Something I noticed the other day was, while a Fedex Sprinter was making a pickup at our business, they have E rated 16" tires, but the air pressure sticker above the wheel wells stated that air pressure was to be 56 lbs. That's lower than the max for a D rated tire. They must know something.

I have puzzled for a long time as to why wheel manufacturers aren't required to display a maximum inflation pressure - and even if the government does not require it, why the manufactirers don't do it just for legal liability's sake. To answer that puzzlement, I have talked to many folks in the wheel industry - and 90% of the people I talked to aren't in a position to truly answer the question (although, that didn't stop them from doing so!).

But I did talk to 3 wheel engineers and to a man they all said that inflation pressure only plays a minor role in wheel durability - that the load is by far the most important factor. That would explain why it doesn't regularly appear stamped on the wheel - and why the government doesn't require it.

I am still unsatisfied with those 3 and am still seeking further confirmation, but that is where it sits for me right now.

The original wheels on my '74 Argosy 26' are stamped on the inside of the rim. 65lbs MAX PRESSURE.
I found it when cleaning the rims for painting.

My Alcoa wheels that came on my Classic were stamped on the inside of the wheel. Those were 95 psi. My Sendel T02's are stamped 100.
