Do the 8 lug 16” trailer rims for the load G 110 psi tires have the same size lug holes and pattern as the 8 lug 16” trailer rims for the load E 65 psi tires. Need to pull new to us trailer 700 miles home and it has ten year old load E tires. Can take along and swap our current load G tires if the rims will bolt up. Both are from/for Sundowner trailers.

The bolt pattern on both is a 8x6.5" pattern. The lug holes are likely the same. Thus I don't believe you'll have an issue. There may be a difference in stud diameter, depending on axle size, but the wheels should change back & forth. 8K axles have larger studs than 7K as I recall.

the lugs may match up but the stud size may be bigger, if you are buying new wheels i would really urge you to step up to 17.5 inch wheels, the tires are worlds better and easier to find and often times cheaper than 16 inch G rated tires
