Compare tires using the Load Rating. A modern all steel radial like we are discussing here are built with one sidewall ply and 4 or 5 tread plys. The ply rating is derived from the load rating and is a throwback to the 1950s. Have no idea why manufacturers still put a ply rating on the tire.

To add to the above education, look at the inflation table vs. the max weight. You will find that different manufacturers rate at different PSI ratings. You also need to know your max wheel PSI, some are limited below the tire spec.s.

This wouldn't surprise me. I don't take my caps off often, but when I do, I have learned to be careful re-installing them. It is very easy to think it is on and still have them leak. Happened to me at least 3 times in the last 3 or 4 years. That's why I never do this on the day of departure.
