So 4x 730kg = 2920kg.
So as long as you get tyres with a load rating of this or higher IMO everything should be OK, even a load rating of 95 on tyre would be OK as this still gives an overall weight rating of 2760 (690kg per tyre)
97 on a wheel doesnt give a load rating thats only for tyres ,
You work out the loading on the heighest axle weight divided by 2 (this is on the vin plate )
Not the total van weight divided by 4 .
