Hey Mr. Mike. Thanx for the reply. The Max. Load on the Bridgestone Duravis M700 HD is 3,195 lbs. Not sure about the load capacity of the axle on my RAM. It’s been a while since I communicated with the manufacturer but it’s substantially over the published GVRW rate weighting of 14,000 lbs. It’s a CYA thing with RAM and the other big 3 truck manufacturers to understate the weight ratings. Every wonder how Ford, Chevy and RAM can simply increase their weight ratings every year without changing any gear? This is how they do it. It’s all a marketing game.
