The same "E" rated tires are used on a 2008 3500HD SRW truck from Ram as a 2500HD. The GARW for a 3500HD is rated at 6,200 LBS and for a 2500HD is 6,010 LBS. Now the only difference is one leaf on each side of the rear axle spring pack for that year truck. The trucks use the same axle, wheels, tires, differential gears, axle shaft and shocks. The Michelin “E” rated tire has a load capacity of 3195 LBS at 80 PSI.

Now if you are worried about a heavy pin weight then you can install 19.5” wheels and tires on the truck which will allow a heavier pin weight to be carried several members of Turbo Diesel Register have done this with excellent results. You need to know the weight of the truck and trailer fully loaded to know if you are overweight or not.
