Tips for Buying Tires : Tire Load Rating Tips


RICK GEISSLER: Hi, I’m Rick Geissler, expertvillage.com,
coming to you from A & R Tire, talking about how to buy tires. On every tire today built,
not only you’ll see this on this sticker, but if the sticker’s not there, it’s molded
into the side wall of the tire. That goes for all passenger and light-truck tires. And
when you get into P-metric, I’m sorry, when you get into the light-truck, load-rating
tires, it’s not on the tire itself. But when you’re looking at your–you can always look
at the AA or whatever that tires has. But also when you’re looking at your load ratings,
after your speed rating on a tire, you’re going to see the load rating, and the load
rating here is an index of 97. You can go to a book and get the calculation of that
load rating for that vehicle to make sure, and that’s another number, you never want
to decrease that, so you don’t buy a set of tires that have an 84 load rating when your
tires came with a 92.
