TYRE LOAD RATINGS

  

Most car and van tyres used in the UK have both a load and speed rating after the tyre size, e.g. 195/65R15 is usually followed by 91V. This means the tyres can carry a load of 615 kgs upto a maximum speed of 149 mph. When replacing tyres it is important to ensure the new tyres, even if a different size, have the same or a higher load rating. It is normal for the combined load of the 4 tyres to exceed the maximum weight of the vehicle by about 25% to allow for uneven load distribution or excessive loads when cornering or braking. The table below shows the conversion from the LI number to the capacity in kilograms.
