Am I correct in assuming there are two different load ratings for S83's.? I seem to recall there used to be.

They're currently only available in 59J. 59 denotes the weight load rating of 245kg. J is the speed rating which is 62mph. I did read recently that someone removed them as they were marked as tube type but they're currently only available in tubeless, so if they've previously been available in tube type then it's also possible that they've been available in a lower weight load. 59 is currently the highest weight load rating available in 3.50 x 10. In general if you go up to 100/90 x 10 you can find a 60 (250kg) or 61 (257kg) weight load rating but strange that in S83 the 100/90 is only 56 (190kg) weight load rating.
