1760 lbs is related to a Load Range C tire. I do know firsthand that you can get a Load Range D tire (2040 lbs) in a ST 205/75R14 size. Usually when you get up too much in weight, then you go up in axle ratings and accordingly tire sizes, thus no industry need for a Load Range E tire in a 14 inch diameter.
I say "usually" cause here recently we received sales literature from one of our distributors saying they were now carrying a Transeagle trailer tire that had a 225/75R15 tire in a Load Range F (12 ply rated) and Load Range G (14 ply rated).
