I can't remember the brand, I'll have to take a look again... It's a Chinese tire... but the 75 MPH limit is marked on the tire side...
I'll take a picture of it by noon and post here today...

Here are the pictures of the tires...
They are "Castle Rock ST" tires, rated at "L" speed...

Regardless of the speed rating on the tires, I would not tow faster than 65 mph. You need to have extra time to slow and stop all that weight back there. No need to be in a hurry - you're on vacation! Exceeding 65 mph occasionally to pass is not a problem even if the tires are only rated at 65 mph.

Itat,
That is my thinking...
I was planning to keep 62-63 MPH but I was not happy with it.
Most of the highways around here have a limit of 65 for semis and they really ride at or slightly above 65 mph so I would be riding close to the tires limits and with semis buzzing behind me.
If I can keep 65 mph or just a little above that I can keep the pace with the semis and that is great.

That is what I think.

Thoughts?

You'll decrease your gas mileage exponentially the faster you drive.
There's a reason most drive in the 60-65mph, other than tire speed rating.
It's the sweet spot for fuel economy.

I tow between 60 & 65 also, but it is nice to know that the tires are rated above that speed on the rare occasions where I have to exceed it. Thanks again!

My Shamrock also came with those tires. I was surprised to see 75 mph rated tires on it. But still plan on my usual 60-63 mph speed.

I carried 3 and 4 bikes on my Kodiak with the exact same rack and adapter for 6 years, it was all built around welded 1" square tubing, this one is all 2" square tubing and I spent a TON of time on it. Really not sure what you are fussing about. This is how it is done. That is how a hitch is installed on the back of vehicles, weld it all up and bolt it to the frame.
