It's not something I worry about. I have a family member at Ford and a friend that used to work at Reese. I'm still within the full capabilities of what the vehicle, hitch, and trailer can handle. I said before that those numbers are just suggestions by the company's lawyers. I haul around a wife, 2 kids, and our dog. If I felt I was putting them in any danger I wouldn't do it. I've been towing race cars since I was 16, 25 years, everything I've towed has been over weight and I've never even had a tire blow out on me......knock on wood.
Back to the OP, what did you run for tire pressures?
