These are load range G.

The higher load on the 275/80 may be related to the higher air pressure it is designed for.


Three year old Toyo 295/75R22.5
6175 pounds at 110 psi.



New Uniroyal 275/80R22.5
6610 pounds at 120 psi.


The steer axle is allowed 12,500 pounds.

6,175 x 2 = only 12,350

6,610 x 2 = 13,220.

And I thank you, Brewerbob, to refrain from banal juvenile body-parts humor on my thread.

You are the last one I thought would be bothered. There are just some jobs you don't want exposed skin; welding, frying bacon, etc. Playing with lots of moving parts wouldn't be my idea of fun.

I certainly wasn't trying to rile anyone up. Just saying be careful.

Thanks, Gustav and EastCoastCB! You win the Millicent Chronicles today.

Though... this is as good a time as any for a safety message:



In fact, I was mildly injured once, when a pants-leg caught in a #40 chain drive on one of my larger pedal-vehicles.
And I learned my lesson.

Now... an update.
When I built the tailgate, I used garage door springs and wire-rope and pulleys to counterbalance the weight.
But I accepted a misalignment of the fixed pulleys, figuring it might be OK -- at least for a while.

Well, that "while" expired late last year.

I have oiled these wire-ropes and pulleys religiously, but the edge of the pulleys still tore up the wire-rope, slowly but surely. It took ten years, but when one of them snapped, it was a surprise, because it did not look "all that bad" yet!

So, now we know... frayed steel wire rope needs to to be replaced sooner than one might think.

Here you can see the problem -- with the new wire-rope in place.
I need to realign the pulley axle so there is no rubbing. Easy enough to do. "One of these days".
