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.
