Check the latest truckers atlas for states that don't allow 20,000 lb on an axle, and avoid them. There is no license you just need the tire and axle rating. I rarely leave the the central states, but I think only South Dakota has that weird inches per thousand pound rule on steering tires.

Make sure your front axles and tires are rated 15,000 lbs. You may need to add another axle to help carry the weight. A steerable single tire lift axles is popular in the midwest to haul extra weight.
