It would appear that the new Toyo A/T, 285/75/17, has a load rating of 128 which is roughly 3960 lbs/tire. A great option for those of us whith Dodges and 17 inch wheels. Just though I would share this, since I've been considering a TC.

Yep, those Toyo's have a healthy rating. I have 295/70/17 MT's on my truck, 3970 lbs per tire max rating.

Joe,

What's the rating on your stock rims (looks like the alloy rims)?

I had Toyo AT's on my previous truck and they were great... reasonably priced, excellent traction, long-wearing and relatively quiet.

However, I would say that they are an "alternate" to 19.5's only if your rear axle is less than 7920lbs... and you are comfortable being close to the max load (or perhaps over) if you have a heavy TC.

My rear axle is just over 8000lbs (loaded & wet)... I sleep a lot better at night knowing that I am 2000lbs below the tire load rating of my 19.5's.

Cheers

Just so it's clear, these are only a viable upgrade if the wheels you mount them on are rated for that kind of load. A lot of wheels (after market as well as stock) are NOT.

im not sure of the load rating of my wheels yet. but ill look into it. alcoa makes fords aluminium rims. i pick them up and deliver them sometimes. id be more worried about rubber valve stems than aluminium rims. i went to solid bolt in steel valve stems. if i get a rating on the rims ill post it.
