Its funny how people recommend pushing the limits on their tow vehicle ratings, but then they freak out if you go 60-65mph and almost stroke out if you tell 'em you go 70 mph towing, especially when some of our interstates here are 75mph. To each thier own!

I suppose it's because it is a extremely rare case of a TV breaking due to exceeding a lawyer sticker and a rather common occurrence of factory tires blowing.

But how many are due to going 65 or more?
I think most tire failures are due to people,
1 not watching thier pressures
2 running old tires
3 having damaged tires, or
4 hitting or running over something.
Sometimes crap just happens though. But whether your going 60 or 70mph i fail to see how either speed is going to do more or less damage than the other.....and both are going to be within manufacturers specs if conditions are followed like op states.

Oh, and i get to see the broke crap that fails on vehicles when over loaded, at work.
But i know OC....im always wrong

I thought OC was going to say you hit the nail on the head about being wrong! 😄

You know I'm not the only one who thought it!

Back to the OP- a member here put in a dealer information request to Maxxis and got the same basic response as what is listed in the Goodyear document: increasing the PSI allows you to increase the speed rating. The Maxxis document is a bit more confusing since it derated the carrying capacity by 10% over 70mph.

I think Tireman9 also researched if you can exceed the maximum cold inflation or tire placard to achieve this extra speed rating. I don't recall where he landed, but I think you could find his posts on it.

Thanks for providing some clarity on this! I'm sure some will still think I'm a fool but that's okay with me.
