Inflation info
I thought they sold me 113 load index .
They actually sold me 111 so they were about 130 lbs less each .
The fact they were new tires I felt comfortable with it. I never went over 65-67 . Mostly 64-65.
This setup will never see that weight again . The most I usually put in the trailer is under 500 lbs cargo if I have a full tank of water. Water is 40 gal. 333 lbs. I always fill up close to where I'm staying. Truck would have less including passengers.

Thanks for the pictures.
Since the tires are "P" type the load capacity must be reduced so it is not 2,403 but is 2,185# per tire when you set the inflation to 44 psi. There will be no increase in load capacity with an increase in inflation pressure.


Post #33 suggests 2,650#. Where did that number come from? You said you replaced the OE LT tires with something different but not LT so I would assume also some "P" tires which would also have their load capacity reduced.


New Capacity = (Original Capacity)/ 1.1 per tire industry and DOT standards.
