ZX3 Approx 2600lbs
Weight distribution 60/40 F/R

So 2600 x .6 = 1560
1560 / 2 = 780

So I need tires rated for 780lbs

Do I have this right?

Yes, a tire will withstand much more than whats stamped on the sidewall. Tires are tested to 2X or more the rated load to keep the manuf. from getting sued. I work for Goodyear ( actually testing tires) and I have put more than 4000# on a single 17" and they still run.
