Tyre Load And Speed Rating

Tyre Load And Speed Rating

When Purchasing New Tyre Assemblies For Your Trailer, Ensure That The Load Rating Of The Tyre At Least Matches The Original Or Exceeds The Specification Of The Original Equipment.

For Example, If The Original Equipment Calls For A Tyre That Has A Load Rating Of 86 This Tyre Will Carry A Maximum Load Of 530kg.

Where As A Tyre That Is The Same Size As The Original With A Load Rating Of 97 Will Carry A Maximum Load Of 730kg, Therefore Exceeds The Manufacturers Original Specification And Can Be Used As A Direct Replacement.

The Letter That Is After The Load Rating Number Denotes The Speed Rating
