Thats not enough margin to keep me comfortable. I haven't weighed it, but in looking at others posts here about thier weights with the same trailer, I very well could be pushing 3k.

The new wheels look great, and the tires look like they are monsterous in comparison to the ones on the 13 footer.

These are 185r14c, the C indicating commercial when in that position, not the load rating. The D Load rating on these is 1875. I think I can keep it well within that.

Why can't they come up with a standard for naming this stuff? Or at least a different character for each meaning?

David, good point. I will keep that in mind.

I haven't replaced the spare yet, so I should be able to have some leeway in an emergency once I do.

Gina, I agree that a decent margin is a good idea... which is why I would choose at least the ST205/75R14 load range C. My current tires are only load range B, which is not enough.

I find that the tire notation is quite well defined... but the listings provided by sellers do not rigorously follow them. "C" for commercial really doesn't mean much.

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

Umm, I think there IS a standard, but we are not calling this by the proper name -- It isn't Load RATING it's Load RANGE, which implies a range of values and they may or may not overlap -- The load rating will be dependent on the tire pressure used -- These aren't automotive tires with one TP and one rating...

Goodyear Load and Inflation Table

Also, bear in mind that the axle also has to meet the load, so some reading of the axle tag/stenciling is also in order.

Range, Rating... whatever

There is a standard, yes, but it's not linear. For example, a 185/r14c is not the same as a 185/r14 c.

They duplicate characters. But I think from a different engineering standard, so these probably make perfect sense to car people.



The ones I got are 185/r14c, D load range.

Also, Pete, that table is from 2005 and they say at the bottom that the standards are changing.. which may add to the confusion if not everyone has transitioned yet.

Gina,

What brand are your new tires? We're also looking to upgrade to a load range D.

Congratulations on the new Burro!

Nita

Hi Nita,

They are wynstars. Not a name I have heard of, they are made in china. Like most every other brand these days

I know that knocking on them with your kuckle feels like hitting a brick wall.

Not to me, and any of my friends will tell you that I am very much a car person. I don't think the "C" for commercial is from any industry standard.

I believe that the transition in the Light Truck tire world is from the letter-designated "load ranges" (which correspond to maximum inflation pressures and the old count of cord plies) to numerically designated "load index" values like passenger car tires (P- sizes). The load index is a number which directly corresponds to the allowed load, so two tires of different sizes with the same load index do actually carry the same amount of weight. Many LT listings show both load range and load index, so I expect Special Trailer tires will follow... in about the year 2020.

Like almost every other trailer tire brand, but not Passenger car or Light Truck tires. I don't think there's anything wrong with being made in China (or any other country), but you know a product has not advanced for quite a few years when it has become a generic commodity that comes from anywhere, made by anyone.
