When you say that how is that calculated? I was curios about that because it has 20" wheels with an extremely low profile.

I think all ST tires (trailer tires) are rated for a 65 mph max as acadian bob stated.

It should be marked somewhere on the sidewall.

I pul a 235 Surveyor with my Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 4.7 8 cyl.engine
Trailerweight when loaded with all our stuff app. 5200 lbs
We've travelled to the far east of Canada ,NewFoundland and west to Vancouver Island and almost everything else in between .in Canada and the USA.
I think the total miles travelled is probably app .40.00 miles.
It's a great little trailer.
We fitted a hitch receiver on the 4" bumber ,it needed a bit of strengthening for it to work .
Now we travel with our luggage carrier on the back, this caused a bit of sway, when loaded too much, we need to watch that.
We have a reese hitch with 2anti sway bars, that are adjusted fairly tight.
WE are 2 happy campers and look forward to many more happy miles of travel in these 2beautiful countries .

I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee towing a Palomino G210 and would suggest that if you are buying a tow vehicle that you get something with a longer wheel base. I have the Reese Dual cam setup and it still got pushed around on a recent trip to Virginia Beach. It is after all a luxury off road vehicle and can tow in a pinch but..... A lot can be had for the price of a Grand Cherokee.
