I got the load range C. I felt that since my TT is only about 4500lbs loaded, spending the money to step up to a D wasn't justified. I just purchased a Tundra yesterday, so the odds are good that these tires only need to last this season. Lol.

I run Hercules on my truck and 5th wheel. Truck tires are rated a 3400lbs trailer tires at 2150lbs. So far 15,000 on the truck and about 4000 on the trailer with no problems.

All ST type are 65 MAX. Think of that like an engine redline. Possible to exceed but you will eventually pay.

Also multi axle trailers should be running the tire sidewall pressure as cold inflation.

Good to know that Hercules has established a Speed Rating for their trailer tires. I note that they have some trailer tires with higher load capability than some others.

The default on ST tires that do not have a Speed Rating from the tire manufacturer is still 65, lacking something in writing, from the mfg or molded on the tire sidewall from the tire.
