Default 2015 RAM 2500 wheels

Anyone know the load capacity on the 18" factory wheels on the 2500? I know I probably can remove one and look, but just seeing if anyone knows.

Thanks

That's the tire. I am looking at wheels.

Reason is this---I have a buddy who runs a tire shop. I was hanging out the other day and looked at a wheel I liked quite a bit. It was a 18X9 8 lug. Most all wheels nowadays are bling bling gangster metal mulasha type deals i don't care for. I really liked this plain old school looking wheel, but the weight rating on it is only 2200 lbs. Wheels for a mid size sedan are probably that rating. I did look online and found some nice old school wheels from ProComp rated at 3600 lbs. I just want to make sure i am meeting or exceeding what the stock wheels are for load rating. There are lots of HD Truck wheels out there that have a terrible load rating.

Sorry misread that. I have looked and been unable to find that information but I would guess at least half the gross axle weight they advertise.
