My only guess is that you are trolling. Maybe you're the one who should do some research. I already did.


So what is the loading rating for the wheels you bought? Last I remember you had no idea.

Naw, you seem to be confusing adding 200 lbs past a wheel rating with 1500 lbs.

I have no idea. I already said that.

Being factory wheels that came off a 3500HD truck I don't question that they will be more than suitable for my 2500HD.

My truck has a GVW of 9500 lbs and a max payload for my truck is 3704 lbs.

The 3500 that the wheels I just purchased came off has a GVW of 10700 and a payload rating of 7153 lbs.

So why would I question whether or not the wheels are capable of what I need them for??

You keep refereeing to them as shinny wheels with a Chevy emblem thinking they are cheap aftermarket wheels when they are not.

They are stronger and more capable than the factory wheels that are currently on my truck.

Any wheel coming from reputable manufacturer will have the company name and model number molded/stamped on the inner part.
Even Chinese wheels have those.

If you have the name and model number you should be able to check the load rating. Don't assume they are suitable because they came off a 1 ton truck. The OP here also had them on an HD pickup.

Plenty of people buy wheels and tires they like without any regard to load ratings.

That 955 KG = 2105 lbs.. Even for an 8 lug wheel, that's pretty sad.. Hell, The tires I have on my F150 are only "XL" rated (equal to an LR C tire) and have #2600 rating each @ 50 psi..

If you can find a load rating on an OEM GM wheel please enlighten the rest of us .

With a name and model number there should be a way to trace the specs. Beats me why anyone would buy a wheel without that information.
