I put the 365s on this weekend and noted a little more squish then the 315s had suggesting visually they may need more then the 105 based on weights. Do yours look different from how the 315s sat.

Inflate based on actual weight or GAWR if actual is not available, not appearance of sidewall deflection.

My corner weights are: L 8,348 lbs, R 8,700 lbs. Using Michelin's tire pressure guide I'm using 105 psi for 9,130 lbs. I could probably increase it some, but the ride I had back home (~60 mi) was not bad.

I wanted to post a final note in this thread in case someone searched it out. The update worked fine and all components are fine for clearance. The tires do run cooler then the 315s and the ride is about the same. Could be slightly quieter but I would not recommend making the update for ride quality improvement alone. My opinion is only make the upgrade to 365s if the 315s wont handle the weight. Im happy I did and have no regrets since all I really needed was the capacity.

Weight capacity is the reason I upgraded the Dutch Star front tires from 275/70 to 305/70's. Ride was the same even though I went from 120 down to 105 after the change. But I was happy with the change, just like you are.

This is interesting. The previous owner upgraded the front rims and tires. I need to check the mod# on the Alcoa's but the tires are 385/65 R 22.5 I swear that wheel looks 12" wide. I'm just wondering what those tires are going to cost me to replace. So the tag wheels/tires can be upgraded as well? Mine looks pretty close to the fender now. is there overhang on the axle side for wider wheels?
