It's a hard one to say as we won't know what all your conversion parts weigh.

However, the T28 means you can carry 2.8 tonnes including the weight of the vehicle etc etc.

If you really need to know, you could always take it to a weighing bridge at a cost.

It's hard to know what you mean by "fully converted" because a pop-top will make a big difference, but my fully converted SWB van (with pop-top and all the rest) weighs 2.3 tonnes with no other payload on board except the driver and half a tank of fuel.

I'm not too sure what you mean, but tyres (and wheels) must be rated to match or exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight of the vehicle, as marked on its load plate.

What the vehicle normally weighs without payload on board isn't relevant to choice of tyre (or wheel) load rating.

There is no real subsitute for putting it on a weighbridge for that, because knowing the total weight doesn't tell you what each axle's loading is.
