    Actually data provided in table concur. At 390lbs load patch is 60 and pressure 6.5psi 60x6.5=390, and at 774 patch 75 ant pressure 10.3, 75x10.3=773, close enough. What seemed to be an argument that pressure increases with tire load, and that tire does not behave like ideal balloon due to sidewall stiffness and initial geometry, so the relationship is not direct at boundary conditions. So patch of tire with zero load will not be zero.

    Since we had measured patch and pressure for front and rear tire, we can make more accurate assumptions about tire load. The load on tire is within Liniar range of 300 to 800lbs and fig is high profile soft sidewall tire, so

    According to Motor Trend, the weight distribution is 61% front, 39% rear. Here is the link that shows it.

    A friend of mine has scales. We measured my 2015 DE before I'd messed with it much. This is with aftermarket shocks and wheels, I believe.

    Front: 573/648, Rear: 362/474, Total: 2057

    That's close to 59:41

    Fuel load can easily account for 2-3% on a car this light.
