    i just purchased some bfgoodrich 265/70r/17C from my tire guy thats been selling me tires since day 1...these are all-terrain t/a's..

    anyway my truck is a 06 1ton srw long bed..i might haul 1500lbs of stuff..

    how do i figure a load rating for the tires?

    Maybe I've always done it wrong, but I look at what rating is on the tire, multiply by 4(in your case) and go from there. If you only haul 1500 then I would think D range would be fine, but I'll bet your truck came with E's which will increase the payload.

    Load range "C" are going to be under what you would want. These are rated for 2470 lbs @50PSI

    A 1-ton truck should have "E" or atleast "D"

    Here is a link to the BFG A/T ratings
