Saltydog: I have not had any issues running SRW, I run about 60-65 mph depending on traffic conditions and weather, I check all tires at every fill up and I run max pressure in all of them.
Get yourself a small infer-red temp gauge and check them when you stop... all in all just be don't be in a hurry

I will tell you that my 5er came with LR-G tires. Based on the GVWR o the trailer, these tires were running almost at max rating. I blew out 2 of them even thought I was very anal about checking tire pressures. I planned on upgrading to LR-H but ended going to LR-J tire. I didn't do it to increase the rating of my 5er, but just so I could minimize the worry of bowing tires. Two 1800 mile trips since and no issues.

Same logic can be applied to the tow vehicle.

That was my origial purpose, I just did not relate it clearly....not looking to "increase" factory spec'd ratings, but increased load rating of tires w/o heading into a DRW configuration that is not required by the laws of physics or limits of engineering.
