Tire Load Rating Help

Hi guys im in the process of ordering new Tires and rims
for the RIms im going with the Anza (fuel wheels)

for the tire i was going to go with the Falken Wildpeak AT but i found that the Cooper AT3 have a 70$ rebate so im going to go with those
the size is 265-70-17

the trouble i am having is the Load Rating. the AT3 are SL load (standard) will that work with my commander hemi? i doubt i will be taking it off road but, would like some good traction in bad winter.

the at3 are $149 a tire. the next load rating is C1 at $192 a tire.

i am worried about the gas miles so i would not like a very heavy tire.

below is alist of all the tires i was looking at (keep in mind there is a $70 rebate on the AT/3)

Cooper st maxx load E $775
Cooper discoverer at3 load rating 115 $595
Goodyear duratrac load 115 $833
Dunlop grandtrek at20 load index 113 $449
Nitto terra grappler load 113 $645
Falken wild peak load 113 $589

Go to Tirerack.com and do some research there.

If I was buying tires I would find out for sure what was the load index (I think that is different than load rating) of the OEM tires and get at least the same load index in a replacement tire. If you're NOT going to tow, then I'm "guessing" a slightly lower load index would be OK.

Again, I would confirm, but I "think" the OEM Tires are standard load rating (there is no load rating following the P-metric size of the tire, it is only added if the load rating is different than standard load rating; i.e. if they don't list a load rating after the p-metric sizing, it means its standard load rating). So its reasonable to assume a standard load replacement tire would work just fine. Again, if your towing heavy load, I'd find all the specs of the OEM and get at least those specs if NOT better in a replacement tire, including load index as well as temp and traction.

Tire rating

You will be fine with that tire. Per Cooper's web site the load rating for that tire is 2679 lbs. So you can have a total load of 10,716 lbs with all 4 tire at max pressure. I am having trouble pasting a link but at Coopers web site look under SUV tires

I pulled up the fitment on your Commander and all the tires you are considering exceed the load rating requirements.

In terms of weight, the lightest options will be "P" metric sizes. From there, generally speaking C rated tires will be the next lightest then D, and E tires will likely be the heaviest.

Give us a ring if we can help you with your fitment. We don't stock Fuel Wheels but we can special order them in for you. Your salesman can quickly quote a number of wheel and tire packages and can help you calculate the weight differences.

Anyone here would be happy to help you: 1.888.459.4080

Hay, I just placed an order with you guys vis Ebay.

i ordered the P265/70-17 COOPER DISCOVERER AT3 (great price at 141.55 a tire) and the another $70 rebate from Cooper.

so you are saying i should not have any problems running these P rated tires, correct?

Regarding the fuel wheels, i will be ordering them in a couple of months and i will definitely keep you guys in mind.

Those are NOT OEM sized tires, so no one can say you will NOT have any problems.

As far as load rating, no you shouldn't have any problem. Interference or rubbing, maybe. Reduced torque from apparent FDR change from a different tire diameter, speedometer differences, etc. The ESP and Traction Control might have problems with oversized tires, someone with the right scan tool can change the tire size in the control modules to fix any problem from a different tire diameter.

Hi Mongo, thanks for that reply. I will be getting a superchip (flashpaq or vivid) to fix the oversized tire issue. I was mainly concerned with the load rating.

Thanks!

Right on, thank you for your purchase!

Your stock tire is a P-rated (4ply) tire and had either a 104 or 105 load index (depending on the stock size). Your new tires are also p rated and have a higher 115 load index. Your new tires are rated to carry over 500 lbs more per tire.
