I'm curious about determining axle loading so I'm going to ask what may be a "dumb" question.
In this thread where front axle weight ratings are discussed in terms of a few hundred pounds (on a 14,000 lb plus axle) I have to ask; is gross front end weight used to determine being above or below axle limit? If so, would it be reasonable to subtract 2x(tire + wheel + rotor + caliper) weight to figure axle loading?
Thanks for any insight.
