    Rapido 983M axle weight limits - HELP REQUIRED

    I'm trying to source some tyres for a 2007 Rapido 983M.
    Current tyres are Continantal 235/65 R16C 118R
    The problem is the load rating 118.
    Lots of tyres available witha 115 rating and a few at 121 but struggling to find anything but Continental at 118.
    I want to find out if 115 will do and to do that I need the axle weight limit but my van is in storage at the moment so I can't look at the plate.
    Anybody else got a Rapido 983M and know what the axle weight limits are please?

    Rear axle limit 2430 means tyre load 1215 kg which is exactly the weight limit for 115 load rated tyres according to a table.
    I presume this why 118 load rating tyres were originally fitted and that it would be unsafe to down rate to 115 rated tyres?

    What's wrong with Continentals?

    I've just replaced mine with the same as originally fitted by the manufacturer as they seemed absolutely fine to me.

    Nothing WRONG with Continentals except the price. I was hoping to find something cheaper and there is a much wider choice at lower load ratings.
    However it looks like I'm stuck with 118 or greater. In fact 118s are as rare as rocking horse shit - more choice in 121s
