The actual weight we are dealing with is:
40# a tire = 160#
Platform = 28#
So we are at 188#

Yes, the leverage concerns me.

I'll be doing a comparative check on the load centerline VS. the "Tire Tail".
Having the load more in line (low) with the hitch will help with load stability.
The leverage of the Tire Tail really makes me wonder how much abuse a hitch will take.

As far as my struts in the rear, that is minor compared to other issues.
