    Ive looked everywhere and cant find the information. Im trying to pick up some kind of tractor in Kansas headed to NC. But at 35500lbs it puts me overweight. I say that its 35500 with 4 of the 8 tires removed and would be sitting on my deck somewhere. Id have to get permits anyway because its over width but, Can permit it with the tires separate? It is some kinda of farm tractor(agriculture)

    I know the rules for divisible loads but, there are states that allow you to do things like haul a wheel loader or a d7 overweight and can haul the bucket or blade separately and not be considered divisible.

    How do I find this information?

    In the front of your atlas ( u do have one right?) is a list of phone numbers for each state’s DOT. Pick up the phone and get busy

    I thought you were allowed to put the tires of the tractor on your trailer, I see that alot, usually 2 on front 2 on rear.

    Yea I guess you are if it doesn’t put you overweight…. Few states allow it, most dont. I thought there was a type of agricultural exemption.

    Can you leave the tires attached. Then they are part of the load, get a wider permit.

    It may vary by state, but I know in some states all removable components have to be removed and overweight permit is based on that number.
     
    xsetra and nikmirbre Thank this.

    If the state is divisible. And allows overweight. I don't think it matters.

    That gets expensive. Usually, the tires come off to save you money on the route miles (permit cost), possible different curfew regs for bigger loads, plus the pilot car(s) which are gonna hit the wallet at $1.50/mile plus overnight pay.
