I saw the thread title, and my first thought was "I've gotta see that"... followed by "what garbage is this going to be?" Hey, the precedent is not good!

The first post all looks like sound information to me, which may be helpful to many members. Thanks Jim
The thread then heads downhill, with misinformation starting in the middle of the second post.

There is a statistic in the first post about the fraction of trailers with overloaded tires. It would be nice if that had a link to an authoritative source, rather than just being an unsubstantiated - and thus not credible - claim.

I suggested reading the first post, learning from it, and ignoring the rest.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I only felt that the first post was the informational item, the rest of the thread was merely responses, and I agree useless. I edited my thread post.

What is the misinformation in the 2nd post?

He was referring to the second post on the thread that the link went to. I only felt the first post there was pertinent.

Good info. I agree with it, and will throw in axle capacity also. Many trailers run right at max axle capacity (or more).

Correct. Now that we agree that only the first post of the link thread is of value, I think we can ignore the contents of subsequent posts.
