I lost that bet. Could have swore the RE's would've had a better load rating.

So why are the RE's better? This is the burning question as we have been sold on load rating for RR (according to most test data) and your results lean away from that.

Or is it a case of psi (weight of each corner of car) acting upon the pavement?
This ain't a war, anymore than a war between men and maggots. Or, dragons and wolves. Or, men riding dragons, throwing wolves at maggots!
