Just got a set of wheels and tires. The Max load on the tire says 1076 lbs. My stock tire says 1235 lbs. Is my new tire safe to use?

I'm not exactly the most experienced tire guy around... but seeing as our car weight all of 2500 pounds, and 1000 lb x 4 = 4000 lbs... you ought to be all right :)

Your tire is safe to use. You have to look at the axle weight and not just the individual weight or load capcity for each tire. The weight ratio on the car is not 50/50, but the axle weight for the front (being that it is heavier than the rear) won't exceed the combined load capacity for the tires. Although, next time, you might want to get a set of tires that meet or exceed the stock load capacity. My $0.02
