Really pulls better than expected. Only thing is tractor trailers really push me around. Going to tighten up sway control and see what that will do.
Went to the cat scales and it was really convenient and fast. I weighed it twice with WD and then again with out bars and off hitch. I'm at 300 lb tongue weight.
Everything is within limits
This is with WD attached and fully loaded.
Because you went to larger tires You can do with lower pressure, but going from C- to E-load would need higher pressure for same load.
Think this boht will compensate, but if you give me maximum load and speed of tire , I can calculate it for you , now you gave the axle loads.
Also need to know the maximum speed you use and wont go over for even a minute. Give also tiredata of car , speed for that stays the same
About the balance .
Making the vehicle higher brings total gravity point also higher , wich makes it sway sideward more easy. heavyer wheels bring it down a little.
For the front /rear sway nothing chanches, because the front/rear sways over the imaginary axle trouch the centres of the wheels.
What I noticed is the little space between the front of TT and the car .
Can be that I am wrong because of how the picture is made.
In Europe we have more space , even enauch to put the bycicles on front dissel, wich is often done for better controll. Probably done to get more weight on towbar, to get the minimum of 10% that is by law in America .
In Europe minimum by law for centre axle trailers is only 1% and maximum allowed 10% ( America max 15%).
