WHAT 16" TIRE HAS THE BEST WEIGHT RATING

I like towing a lot below my tire rating. It's better to have leeway while towing in real hot weather.

Are you asking for what load range you should run? I will assume that is what you are looking for but, for the most part a 3/4 or 1 ton truck will require E rated tires for towing as that is going to give you the best weight capacity. Depending on how heavy you tow and what your hitch weight is you can run a D range tire. I personally would only run a E rated tire unless you never tow.

3750 for Nitto Duragrapplers in 285/75r16

Pretty sure thats as much as you are gonna get from a 16" tire. Though i just checked a dozen E rated tires in that size, same weight rating...

I believe good year makes some higher rated tires for real heavy duty applications. Some low pro 18 wheeler trailers run them and I think they are load range g. No need for all that on a pickup though. E's will handle all you can carry. I've had really good luck with Firestone transforce ht's. I pull close to 23,000lbs with my dually every day and I get about 30-40,000 miles out of a rear set when rotated out with the fronts.

okay here is what i found 265 75 16 has a weight rating of 3415lbs
now here is a 285 75 16 weight rating of 3750 lbs now that is what
i was looking for when hauling that weight i want to have a good
cushion from my max on the rear axle tires. I figure 2300 lbs hitch
weight then propane and gear in front end puts me to 2500 with hitch
included. This would probably run the tires a little cooler in the summer.
