Sorry dtb7811, I don't understand your question or the point you make. I will try.
In your example above, if you put E rated tires on rims rated at 2830, then you haver a good match and if you only load that tire with 2000 lbs then you have no problems, no need to change anything.
If you loaded the tire with say 3000 lbs then you do have a problem, you would have to buy new rims and tires, but at this stage you could need new axles too and most probably be exceeding the GVWR and what the trailer was built for.
Hope this answers your question.
