Michelin says load index 108 means 1000 kg (2200 lb)

TireRack says 2185 for the specific tire (look here and click the Specs tab)

In this overall definition of load indexes TireRack says 108 is good for 2205 lb.

Discount Tire lists the same 2205 lb for 108 load index, as does Firestone.

I'm leaning toward these Michelins.
It says "max load 2183lbs at 50 psi" on my tires.

I think the 1985lb is the derated value of the 2185. Your supposed to derate the load rating by 10% if you use a P rated tire on a high profile vehicle like an SUV or RV. I don't know how you classify an Airstream since it has a low center of gravity. You get 1986lb if you devide 2185 by 1.1. If it is already rated for LT use then 2185 is a good number.

You won't have any problems with any tire rated 108T or an XL rating. My trailer tops out at 7000lbs and I am having no issues.
