The front and the two outer rears are Aluminum Alloy rims. The inner rears are the old painted steel. There are stainless covers over the lugs and they cover them with that and the Stainless fake lugs. Take off the fake lugs and cover and the real lug nuts are exposed.
I have attached a actual weight for my 2012 378.
Fully loaded including EVERYTHING!!! (DW and 80 lb Lab) pulling the 4 down SUV.
All axle weights.
I also attached the Michelin Tire pressure loading graph for the tires.
XRV 235 80 22.5 tires
I keep my rig at 92 for better handling and fuel consuption.
I tried 100 psi but the ride is too harsh.
The Excel has a chart with blue pointers where the actual weights per tire are.
The green pointers are the max loads at 92 psi where I keep the tires.
At 92 psi the rear tires have 600 pounds of extra capacity and the fronts have 700 lbs. (Multiply x 2 for the axle capacity)

On our GT 351, the sticker calls for 92psi all the way around, and that's what we run.

The picture is not my wheels but was showing the cap removing tool.

Ah, got it.

Well, both the wheels AND the cap removal tool are much nicer than mine, whosever they are.

Thanks for the information.
I do need to hit the CAT scale at least once when I'm fully loaded.
90-92 psi all around seems right for our 2012 378TS model.
When you weighed did you have a full tank of fuel and all your stuff inside?
Did you have a full tank of water, grey and black tanks full or empty?

Thanks for the information on the tire pressure, mine came from the dealer last year when we picked it up at 87 psi all the way around. Drove that all last year did have some wondering MH. This year change them all to 92psi and handles a lot better, can't believe couple of pounds make that much diffrent.

I couldn't believe it either. I guess every tiny bit counts from sway bar, alignment, and tire pressure.

Fully overloaded, returning from vacation. Half on all of the Coach tanks and full tank of gas on the car with bikes etc in it which should be a good number for most. 420 pounds of people and dog.

I just found my Michelin tire catalog which has a great table, tire weight to psi.I have XRV tires 235/80R/22.5 tires and found that the front single tire weight and the rear dually weight.
Read Page 14 for XRV tires 22.5 235/80R/22.5
Hope you can read it.

This chart only gives you the max pressure load
You may find the chart I plotted more useful which is the Michelin load/pressure variations over all ranges of load and pressure that the GT is operated at not just the max

I keep my fronts at 100 and my dualies at 96.Its better to be a little over than under.Whatever you do, make sure that the dualies are all exactly the same.
