NO, most are limited by the rear tires.

Mine has 7900 lbs axle while Ford rates the axle at around 6200 lbs with only 75 psi in the tires.
My 265/70/17 tires were rated at 3100 lbs at 80 psi. Now figure.
But I did observe that my 75lbs aired tires while empty had 80psi when loaded.
It satisfied me.
Now I have 275/70/18 tires with 3640 lbs capacity at 80 psi. I air them at 70 psi and they look great.

Actually your Sterling 10.5 rear axle is rated at 9750lbs GAWR by Visteon, the manufacturer.

Thanks that's even better, so the 3640 lbs tires are the only limit.
