Tires and rear axle weight.

When considering new tires and taking into account the rear single axle weight, should I also include the tongue weight of a trailer loaded/unloaded?

Just make sure the new tires have more capacity than than the GRAWR (gross rear axle weight rating) that is listed for your coach.

What 77Travco said and yes, the tongue weight will be carried by the rear axle plus some weight will also transfer from the front axle due to the leverage between the rear axle and hitch.
