C6 Z06 has a weight limit of 428lbs?

I'm just getting to know my 08 Z06.. I opened up the driver side door the other day to check to see what tire pressure to run. It read "The combined weight of occupants and cargo should not exceed 428lbs". Now I'm sure they just wanted us to know the max weight for maximum potential. Thoughts?

Has nothing to do with "maximum potential". Its the maximum weight the car should carry safely with (std. 18" front and 19" rear) 87Y load rated tires. That load per tire is 1201 lbs. I am not a tire expert so I don't know how the rear of the calculations work out but by increasing the load rating you can increase the maximum cargo capacity.
