tire weight capacity ???

Anyone know what the weight capacity is on the 315/75R16 Kumho KL71 mud terrain? Their website shows the tire but nothing for weight capacity.

Nothing is listed for it at all anywhere. I can call my tire dealer later and find out if he has any info on it.

Would you please??? Thanks!

I like Kumho - have now the 3rd set on my VW Golf TDI - hoping they are as good on trucks as they are with car tires. Cost is my biggest concern now.

Well - cost and the capacity! Got to have minimally 3500lb per.

I checked with my WD and he could not find it either, anywhere.

Just for a point of reference, I don't think they would come close to the cap. you need at 3500 lbs.

For example in the KL71 245/75 wgt. is 3042 on a single and the 265/75 is 3415.

However in Toyo OC MT 315/75/16 wgt. is 3860 on a single.

Email Kumho.

I've done it before for tires. On the sizes I asked about they were the same as the Toyo MTs, not sure if that is the case for all of their tires though.
