Because of the severe weight I carry on my cargo trailer, about 200lbs and I weigh 252lbs, I moved the coupling up on my bike rack to take stress off my shaft and spokes of my back tire. It is working nicely so far. This is the 2nd back tire I have had to replace because of all the stress for the weight. I need all this weight, have lightened it all I care too. Anyways, I hope this helps someone else with huge cargo needs.

Was it rubbing before? Otherwise isnt the full hitch/tongue weight on the back tire no matter the placement?
