I was in the same boat not long ago. Seem plenty of folk ain't too worried about the load rating but with a full conversion plus camper gear I am. The way I see it is they are the bits that hold you to the road and stop you. I'd say the more rubber you have the better. Buy hey, I'm far from being an expert on this.

Also if, heaven forbid you do have a bad crash, having incorrectly rated tyres and alloys would invalidate your insurance (thats provided they actually do check them after, but if it was a bad one I'd say the would) and prob land you in the brown stuff with plod

Good luck finding wheels bud as I'm still searching but I'd go for safety and quality well before looks
