Well doing the math it looks like I am safe by over 200 lbs at GVRW when evenly distributing carrying weight equally over tongue and axles.

GVWR is 7632
TW 623
Dry weight 6056
Weight over axles (DW-TW)= 5433
rated carrying weight 1529
TW + 10% of carring weight = 776
Weight over axles + remainder of carring weight =6809
and my tires are rated for 7040 lbs.

I am sure I am no where near my GVWR and the items (weight) I have added are more towards the tongue of the trailer.

Thanks for help clarifying this for me.

Just make sure you have a spare tire, because if you have a flat you will not be able to tow with three tires especially if you are loaded.

I'm going to look into getting the Kumho tires that are a better load range, a D load range should give you a better sidewall strength, and a higher weight carrying capability. That way, the numbers should be well beyond the comfort zone. Randy

Yes, check them out and see what you think. I had a Casita camper and got to know lots of others who had them. They came standard with the 14-inch Goodyear Marathons C-rated, and the Casita forum was full of horror stories about the Goodyears failing, probably through no fault of the tires except that people likely overloaded them. I and many others went to the D-rated Kumho's, and everyone I heard from liked them. They are a Korean company, but I heard they were building a plant in Georgia a couple of years ago, but not sure if that actually happened.

Just a quick question. Does anyone know if the D-range Khumo tires are st tires or car/light truck tires, as we will be replacing our C- range 14 inch tires with D's; when they wear out. Old guys
