Safe to tow?

I have Toyo 305/40/22 114V proxes on an 09 2500. I’m wondering if it’s safe to pull a camper with these?

Ive towed around 6k with 305/50/20. I've seen/know guys who have towed a gooseneck with a pulling truck loaded on it with the same. It depends on how big your camper is and how far you're going really.

I’d def check the rating of the tires and the wheels and compare to what you’d be carrying.

Load range 114 is what is killing you, that is like 1,000lbs less per tire than stock.

305/50/20 is 3150 per corner iirc. Not sure about the 40/22

I wouldn’t suggest hauling pretty much anything, with your tires you’d have only about 2,000 lbs available to carry.
MAX LOAD SINGLE / DUAL (LBS.)2601 / -
MAX PRESSURE SINGLE / DUAL (PSI)50 / -
2601 X 4 = 10,404 total max weight on your truck.
You’d be safer with thick rubber bands for tires.
They’re for show not hauling.

I was referring to 22's being more for show not work.
I have Nitto Ridge Grapplers 295-55R20 3415 per tire, I can haul weight and go fast, but at my age that probably wouldn't be wise, not quick enough anymore.
