Why do cars have weight limitations on tire and loading information sticker?

Its possible a 40 hp can move over 7000 lbs as long if the driveshaft, transmission and brakes are strong enough to pull.

Answers:

You can move twice that weight with 40 hp but the load rating of tires comes into play when you reach higher speeds and travel more than one mile.

"Why do cars have weight limitations on tire and loading information sticker?"

Not all tires can support all loads. A bicycle tire will not hold up a 747. Tires have weight limitations, even among road-going vehicles. The tires used on Honda Fit, will not support the weight of an F-350 with load in the bed. The information regarding tire pressures and the GVWR are what the manufactered deems that a given vehicle can safely carry.

"Its possible a 40 hp can move over 7000 lbs as long if the driveshaft, transmission and brakes are strong enough to pull."

Sure, that's a function of gearing. There are 40 HP tractors can that can tow a 7000 pound trailer. Of course that tractor won't towing the load very quickly, but it's done thousands of times throughout the world every day.

Take a toy balloon and inflate it to it's full capacity. THEN put a heavy weight on top of it. What happens? The exact same thing will happen to your tires if you overload them.

The power of the engine has NOTHING to do with the capacity of the tires.

It's the gearing that allows small motors to move heavy loads. It's nothing to do with "strong enough".
Tractors have surprisingly small engines, but have very low gearing, so they can pull a 6 furrow plough at 3 mph..

Hmm! I wonder too, that makes 2 - should we create an association?

Tires aren't indestructible. When inflated, there is pressure in the tire. When you add weight to the vehicle, it adds to the amount of pressure being applied ON the tire. And when more pressure is put on the tire, the air inside of the tire is being compressed even more as it continues to keep the tire inflated. If you added even 5 extra psi in your tire and added an extra 500lbs to the maximum weight the tire can handle, it will explode.

Cars are engineered to operate under the load put on them.
