Default What do you have?

I'm looking at tires and I presently have E rated tires I think the size is something like 220/70/16 and I was thinking if I should get a G rated tire. I don't know the weight limitations on either or the B's weight but I will get out the magnifying glass to see what the weight reading is on my tires before I get anything.
What do you have and ever have any problems? Anyone know what their B's weight is on each tire fully loaded?

Had E rated on my Roadtrek.
Had D's (rear dualies) on the B+

Have E's on the Dodge Van
Have E's on the Class C (with rear dualies)

Never had anything weighed but it has been on my to-do list for years It is the proper way to go.

Got 4 Michelins LT245 75R16 LoadRange E last March at Discount Tire.
Installed balanced, etc. for around US$800 with a $70 factory rebate which
I mailed in and they sent me a cheque.
I think their max load rating at proper inflation is around 3200lbs. each.
Currently I'm running the rears at 80 psi and the fronts at 65-70 psi depending
on the winds and temps.
No other problems.
So far.
UPDATE: Looks like DT has a current rebate promo on Bridgestones right now. Have a look.

If I couldn't get Michelins, they would have been my next choice. Then maybe BF Goodrich (made by Michelin?)
