For diameter you would get....about 8% ha ha.
so a 1500lb capacity goes to 1620 lbs. Not that much unless you are right on the edge of capacity.
Tubes Are not spec'd in circumference. If so, 25" would be a circus clown balloon
The diam changes by 4%, not 8. Volume is a rough function of cross sectional area, so your area would increase by 1.04^2 or 8% more volume in the completely cylindrical part of the tube
If Sotar says less than 1000lb then I would believe them. If there is a lot of rocker then you will have a short waterline, maybe 9 or 10'. People think you can load up a cat but I wouldn't knowingly exceed 1200lb on my leopard and that has 18x26.5 tubes
Mostly cause I don't want to put my self in a situation where I can't maneuver it and have to figure out how to unpin the boat
