## What is a 104 load rating?

Using an LT235/75R15 104/101S Load Range C tire as an example, the load index is 104/101. 104 corresponds to 1,984 pounds, and 101 corresponds to 1,819 pounds.

### What is 104 on a tire?

In this example, the 104 corresponds to 1,984 pounds (see chart below), and the 101 corresponds to 1,819 pounds.

#### What is a 100 load index?

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. Most passenger-car tire load indexes range from 75 to 100, but some are higher.

**What load rating is 110?**

For example, a “C” load range indicates that a tire is equivalent to a 6-ply construction tire. This tire isn’t actually built with 6 plies, but rather one or two plies of equivalent strength….

Load Range and Ply Rating | ||
---|---|---|

F1 | 12 | @ 95 PSI |

G | 14 | @ 110 PSI |

**What does 100w mean on a tire?**

The “18” that follows stands for the rim diameter in inches. The load capacity is identified using a numerical code “100” which in this case signifies 800 kg. With the “W” we come to the speed rating – “W” stands for 270 km/h.

## What is a 120 tire load index?

Light Truck Tire Load Index For example, a light truck tire with a load index of 120/116 means a load capacity for a single tire of 3,086 pounds and a load capacity of 2,756 pounds for two tires.

### What load range is 115?

Higher load index ratings mean your tires will be able to handle a heavier load. In this example, there are two numbers….Load Index.

LOAD INDEX | LOAD (lbs) |
---|---|

115 | 2679 |

116 | 2756 |

117 | 2833 |

118 | 2910 |

#### What does 120 load index mean on tires?

For example, a light truck tire with a load index of 120/116 means a load capacity for a single tire of 3,086 pounds and a load capacity of 2,756 pounds for two tires. The reason the capacity for two tires is lower than a single tire is to make sure that the vehicle can continue to carry the load should one tire fail.

**Is Load Range E 10-ply?**

To summarize: ply ratings and load ratings are systems of measurement for load carrying capacity. Load Range E tires are equivalent to a 10-ply tire.

## What does 100v mean on tires?

The 100 is the tire’s load index, and in the case of 100, it means by itself a properly inflated tire can hold up 800 kilograms (1,764 lb.). Four tires can hold 3,200 kilograms, which for many vehicles provides plenty of capacity for holding up the vehicle and anything that might be inside.

### What is 105 h on a tire?

For passenger vehicles, load index ranges from 75 – 105. “H” represents the speed rating, which is how fast the tires can go based on their load capacity. This rating ranges from A – Z. “H” indicates a speed rating of up to 130 mph.

#### What does e10 mean on a tire?

***Select LT sizes are designed with modified maximum load pressures. Never exceed the tire’s maximum pressure or load as indicated on the sidewall. |

**What load range are 10 Ply tires?**

A 4-ply tire is now referred to as a B load range tire because the maximum air pressure it can take is 35 PSI (240 kPa) while a 10-ply or E load range tire can take a maximum pressure of 80 PSI (550 kPa).

**What does 100w mean on tires?**

## What is H load rating on tires?

Higher speed ratings, like H or ZR, can handle far beyond a normal highway speed. For example, “H” would translate to a tire that can only handle speeds up to 130 mph (or 210 km/h).
