I have a 1990 Chevy c/k 1500 2WD. Went to tire store recently to get front tires balanced and kid at counter said they wouldn't do it because the tires weren't rated with a high enough load capacity. But he would gladly sell me a set that was. Can anyone tell me what the minimum is, so I can tell if he yanking my chain or not?

What is your current load rating on your existing tires? If the load rating says for example 1500 lbs., then you would multiply it by 4. That gives you a total load rate of 6000 lbs. Now subtract the weight of your truck form 6000 and the remainder will be your max load. Remember, if it says load rate of 1500 lbs, that's per tire. Here's a more technical article...... http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/wheels-tires/1407-understanding- tire-load-ratings/
