Payload difference between 2020 and 2019

I can’t compare apples to apples.
Yesterday I looked at a 2020 3500 SRW CC Standard box with a payload of 3036lbs. It had 275/65/20 tires recommend tire pressure is 60psi front 70psi rear.
Looked a a 2019 3500 SRW CC Standard box with a payload of 3569psi. It had 265/70/18 tires recommended tire pressure is 60psi front 80psi rear.

Now I have to find a 2020 3500 CC standard box that has the 18” wheels and compare apples to apples.
Since I Tow a 5th wheel I want the highest payload. I was really surprised that the was nearly 500lbs in payload difference with just different tires.

I was going to order one with 20” tires and I may be changing my order to 18” tires.
Dealer of course had no clue what I was talking about when I mentioned my hitch weight was 2500lbs on my 5th wheel and my payload on my 07 Classic was 2351lbs but actually 1500lbs after you subtract everything and I’m 1000lbs over on my payload and I want to be closer with a new truck.

Something doesn’t seem right there. GM lists the payload for a CC diesel truck as 4,185 pounds for a 2020 SRW 3500HD. No mention of it being reduced if it’s rolling on 20s.

Thats the generic brochure numbers. Like my 07 Classic the driver-side pillar my payload is 2351lbs. There’s nothing in any brochure that reflects that number.
Top picture 2020 D/A CC Standard box 3500 20” tires
Bottom picture 2019 D/A CC Standard box 3500 18” tires
Also my curiosity is why the 2020 20” rear tire are not inflated to 80psi but the Spare is 80psi

All 3500 srw will have 80 psi rear tires whether it has 18 or 20 in tires. The majority of 3500s have payloads around high 3's to 4,000 lbs. I think the person comparing had 2500 payload numbers.
