OEM wheel ratings

Does anyone know anything they would share with me regarding the weight ratings for OEM Ford wheels? I had some stockers (8 hole) on my 99, and traded them off to get some stockers from a 2002 (with the oblong openings around the edge). i run E rated tires capable of 3750 max load. wondering if the wheels are capable of performing at that level.
thanks everyone.

I aggree, if your running stock rims from a different year truck. But the truck is basically the same as yours. Then the wieght rating should be the same if not bigger. I think you will be just fine.

My factory Ford Alcoa wheels are stamped "Max load 3450". Single wheel truck and the rims look like outlaw rims, just basic clear coated wheels.

GVWR and wheel ratings

now that caught my attention. i'll go scour for a stamp on the wheel. 3450 is less than my E rated tire. i'm slowly learning that GVWR isn't an exact science. Maybe that's a new thread.... GVWR.... i'd like to identify my weakest link for payload (truck camper) and strengthen it. I'm starting with tires/wheels and airbags.

That still adds up to almost 14000lbs. That should be plenty for anything the truck itself can handle.
