What Does Tire Load Index Mean?
Tire load index is an assigned number that corresponds to the maximum weight that a tire can support when properly inflated.
The higher the tire's load index number, the greater its load carrying capacity.
Choosing a tire with a lower load index than the original equipment specifications means that the tire will not carry the load capacity of the original.
How to Find the Load Index on a Tire?
The load index information may be found on your tire’s sidewall, listed after the tire size information. See the tire load index illustration showing an example of its location.
