Herk, My axle weight is 7340 it has been weighted at a cat scale. According to the Maxxis load rating then I should be under 50 lbs. PSI is that correct which would put me at a max of a C rated trier, I have Marathons D rated. So if I understand your explanation my tires should be ran at 60 PSI that would keep me under the rim rating of 65 lbs and allow me to drive at 70 mph. Is this correct? Thanks for your answer.

Yes. (only considering the tires and not driving 70 pulling a camper)
That is my understanding of the available data.

I have driven at speeds as high as 70 (for short periods) but only when traffic required it for safety or passing expeditiously slower truck traffic with a line of cars behind me.

I have the Windjammer 3008W as well and last fall we had tire issues. I sent an email to the aluminum wheel manufacturer and asked about pressure ratings. They told me the rims can handle Load D (65 psi) without issue but not to go over the weight rating. I did not ask about going to Load E since I was putting D on the trailer.
