    Say a 1.8 ton cutter and a 7 ton tractor
    5.5 ton on rear wheels then a 20ft shift to the left
    Looking like 3.5 to 4 ton on the tyre

    The weight on that wheel is not really a problem, it's the lack of weight on the wheel the other side.

    I got to have 34-35 psi in the 520's but 18psi is fine in the 800's. I'd have the 800's on all the time for trimming only for the damn narrow lanes, so much more stable with them on.

    I'm running 35psi in the rear left, a 600/65/38 Pirelli, the right at 25psi. needs all the 35psi when at full stretch.

    Now if I've read the document correctly, Michelin multibib 650 65 r38 @23psi can carry 4500kg at 40kph.

    Depends on the ground but then again you would rarely be at full reach on a good surface like the road, the field margins here are choppy enough as they got hocked with stock last spring then went rock hard with the dry summer, you'd be bobbing around a bit no matter what setup.

    But you will get away with less as you haven't got the head at full stretch doing 40kph

    At 10kph the weight can go up to 5390kg at the same pressure.

    Pile of places went too soft and got skipped last year.
    Catching up on them this year though.
    Some 4 and 5 year growth taking 10 passes.
