The I3 is roughly 3000lbs my very old suburban is only about 5500lbs laden on the scale.

There are various sizes available in this tire which is why the actual weight rating would be nice.

You were in the thread in March, have you followed along since? All this back and forth about bumps and energy absorbed by the suspension ignores the fact that a key design feature is using a high-profile aspect ratio so higher pressures can be run.
Nope, I haven't really followed.

I get the higher pressures but there is a lot more to the tire than higher pressure. Its construction for example is considered novel.
