Tyre Load Rating or Index

Tuesday, 27 February 2018 5:29:15 PM Australia/Sydney

Tyre Load Index or Load Rating is a numerical code, which is related to maximum weight that tyre can carry at the maximum speed limit mentioned by the manufacturer. In general term, tyre load rating is defined as a part of the tyre size designation with the speed index.


In order to distribute equal weight to all the four tyres of your vehicle, you need to buy all the tyres with the same load capacity.To determine the load limits, refer to your vehicle owner’s manual. While changing of car tyres, we need to take care of the point that it is illegal to install tyres on a vehicle having a lower load index than the original tyre fitment. Wrong set of tyres for your vehicle may cause your insurance to be invalid.


Here, we have come up with a Load Index Look-up chart that shows Load index and subsequent load in kg per tyre.
