Should be fine. Tire rating I think is 3195 lbs. Guys on here run H2's to pull in competion and that sled weighs alot.

There's really no such thing as 'towing capacity' for a tire. Here's what you need to consider. You need to weigh the truck (while it's got the trailer) - get the weight of the rear axle. As long as it's under 6,390 lb, you're fine. While a typical rear axle scales in just around 3,000 lb, that leaves 3,390 lb of margin before you get to the limit of the tires.

Yes, you will be fine - as long as the tongue weight isn't more than 2,100 lb. (a LOT more than it should be), which puts you at 9,200 GVW.

Thanks for the info. I know there is no "towing capacity". I guess I am more worried about swaying. Since you can only air them up to 50psi.
