If you're going to tell us and op that we need to know our rim ratings for switching tires, you need to have real proof as to how to find this!
What I'm saying is, do it yourselfers need to do a lot of homework when doing any kind of changes with their OE tires an rims, automotive or trailer.
I gave a reference with page number to a tire industry standard. What I quoted was not out of context. It was a factual statement from the reference.
If you're going to challenge information from FMVSS documents you're going to have to go and read them and put all the pieces together.
You can put any of these numbers in your browsers search engine. They are documents the vehicle manufacturers MUST apply before it can be certified.
Part 567 - certification is also referred to in most of the above documents (PDF)
p.s. The rim information is in them, Good Luck!
Bottom Line; What a vehicle owner does to his/her vehicle is his/her responsibility. Any outside instructions that may be binding by law will be in the form of state vehicle inspection regulations. CFR part 570.9 & 570.62 are the government's guide to those inspections.
This is now way too technical and will be my last post in this thread.
