BTW ... I went to the Goodyear website on RV tires and they've redone it. The G614 is now broken out on it's own table ... but the G114 table is GONE! Fortunately, I have a saved copy of the old table ... but that has to be a mistake by Goodyear.


 Please see on PDF / Document page 45:

My guess is, as the G114's are not "RV" Tires that could be the reason.  They're commercial tires.

BTW, your weight numbers / load balance - that's about as good as anyone could hope for, IMO.

I agree with the load distribution and balance ... I just got lucky, no special packing skills involved, just blind luck.😎

The Goodyear G114 is indeed a commercial application tire. Typically used on low boy trailers or car hauler trailers.

Ron, How did you get the right and left side weights on a CAT scale, I know you can split the axel weights if you want to go to the trouble . thanks

It's pretty straightforward. After you split the axles to get front and rear axle weights, you pull off the scale and go around and when you pull back onto the scale just drive on with the left side of the trailer OFF the scale pads ( I use the left side because I can see it better) then split the axles again, but this time, only the right trailer wheels are on the scale pads. After getting these weights (Rt front and Rt rear) you just subtract from the total axle weights to get the left side front and rear. Too easy! I learned this from Mark S. who is an ex (old?) truck driver.

This is a fairly easy maneuver if you are comfortable with your rig ... if not, or if it makes you uncomfortable, then don't do it.  Most scales have several feet of maneuvering room on the sides of the scale pads.

Using this procedure required 3 weighings ... first to get normal weights, then one to split the trailer axles, the third is to get the split on one side only. Helps to pick a scale that isn't busy and I usually go in first and explain to the scale operator what I'm doing. Makes it go better if they understand what you are doing. My last one only cost $15 as he charged me for one weigh and two reweighs. But technically, the third one is a full weigh ... I have had them charge me that way also, that's why it's good to go in and talk to them first ... gets everything on the same page.
