Not really, the GVWR is the MAX the TT should weigh after you put your "stuff" in it. Food, water, battery, chairs, clothes, propane...
That rating number is probably more related to the axles and or braking.
I always try to be below that number when travelling.
It's even possible that the combined weight rating of the tires could be less than your TT's GVWR but I think it's usually not.
If you really are cautious by nature a visit to the scales will give you a definitive answer.
My first trip to the scales was intimidating but I survived and was smarter than before (at least I felt smarter).
I've made a grand total of 3 scale trips and I always feel good about it.
