Tile when Set properly is just like concrete. Super strong and hard to crack. It really only cracks when there is a shock factor to it. Such as dropping a bowling ball on it. If you think of it in a relative way. A bowling ball dropped from x height will disperse more psi on the tile then a tank resting on the tile due to the kinetic energy displaced. Thus the tile will be able to withstand way more weight then a tank. Also the weight is distributed to 4 points. Giving the net weigh on each leg around 325 ish lbs. Let's say The legs have an area of 5in. That's only 65lbs per square in.
