Also, I agree, there will be a big safety factor on the quickjack. I am sure the 5k load limit is just the ability of the lift to pick up that much weight.

Those are all actual weights taken off my e53. And yes definitely rear weight bias. For me my usual weight distribution is 1200 front corner and 1600 rear corner.

I have run the tires 32/39 like the door plate suggests which gets me 1200/32=37.5 in. and 1600/39=41 in. contact patches. I just installed brand new tires and with the way I drive I tend to scrub the outer edge of front tires I think I'm going to add a smidge of air.

1200/36=33.333 psi
1600/40=40 psi

1600/32=50 in. (nine more in.). Prob would be good for acceleration but not great for tread wear.
