Hey all, I have searched high and low, and now I'm reaching out to everyone directly. I have a two- up trip coming up, and I'm migrating to tubeless split rims. Now with my 225# self, a 140# passenger, and assorted camping gear, I'm getting concerned about tire load ratings. The S83 only rates at 46 (375lbs.). I see some 59's. Anyone aware of this size with any higher rating? Anyone running them? Thanks. Edit- this is on the Stella 177.

S83 I found online rates at 59; 536lbs.
Duro HF290 has a 90 rating; 1323lbs. Not sure how accurate that is. Seems high.

Pretty sure the original LML ones have a load rating of about 300, as they never wear out... speed rating on the other hand is lacking, pretty sure it's "I" for Indian top-speed only
