I got ahold of someone at Goodyear, and she is sending me over a load chart. They basically look at what the stock tires were, and what the new tires are, and calculate what the new tires should be at max pressure.
She also has a load chart, and she will be emailing that to me today or Monday, she said they were really backed up right now right before the big holiday travel weekend next week.

Therefore, I have been doing research on this load inflation thing, and yes, it exists. I have found other tire manufacturers have a chart.

Well this is the one I use for my trailer tires.
And found this for LT Tires
And this is a real good one from toyo.

I have looked on Goodyear's website as well as Discount Tire's website, and there isn't a Load Curve diagram. I have also searched the interwebs with no luck..
I understand that I could go through the work of the chalk test, but it is imprecise and not needed when the tire manufacture should have already done this.
I am hoping @discountTire can provide this..

|MIkey52||Or you can do the chalk test to even up the tires. Do it at different weights to form your own charts. The information should be on Goodyear’s site.|

Can you share with me the load curve for these tires? |
My understanding is that tire manufacturers create a chart that outlines weight vs corresponding psi that should be ran in the tire.
I'm not driving around with 80psi in my rear tires unloaded like GMC puts on the placard, it's not a good idea.
I just bought 285/70R17 in the load range E category. I love them, but want to set tire pressures correctly for long wear, comfort and safety based on Goodyear's testing, not GM's maximums.

On a side note, what is the GVWR of the trailer? 1000 lb tongue weight seems on the high side which may be causing some of the squirm you're experiencing.

You are correct on size! Tall and narrow. Maybe these just like more psi than the duratrac for towing. Will try. |

Hi, ColoradoOutdoors! |
I think the pressure may be causing some the the "squirm" that you're describing.
What size UltraTerrain Tires are you running? From your picture I'd say LT275/65R-20?
