Tyre Load Index Chart

     

What is a Tyre Load Index?
 

A tyre load index shows what weight a tyre is capable of carrying, when installed to manufacturer recommendations and pressures. Some tyres may have multiple load capacities at different speeds and pressures. Always refer to the manufacturer guidelines when choosing new tyres and ensure that the load and speed index is suitable for you machinery.

 
Below is a table of the most common load index marks found on the sidewall of tyres

Tyre speed rating chart

 

What is a Tyre Speed Rating?

 
A tyre speed rating shows what speed a tyre is capable of achieving, when installed to manufacturer recommendations and pressures. A speed rating is often combined with a load rating to show what weight a tyre will carry up to a certain speed. Always refer to the manufacturer guidelines when choosing new tyres and ensure that the load and speed index is suitable for you machinery.
 
Below is a table of the most common Speed Rating marks found on the sidewall of tyres
