Tire Ratings and Tire Safety

Max. Load Dual kg(lbs) at kPa(psi) Cold


This information indicates the maximum load and tire pressure when the tire is used a dual, that is, when four tires are put on each rear axle (a total of six or more tires on the vehicle). As with a passenger tire, truck tires too have load ratings. The same rules apply here. Know what kind of driving and job you’re going to be taking on and make sure the tire meets that capacity.

Max. Load Single kg(lbs) at kPa(psi) Cold

This information indicates the maximum load and tire pressure when the tire is used as a single.

Snow Tires

In some heavy snow areas, local governments may require true snow tires, those with very deeply cut tread. These tires should only be used in pairs or placed on all four wheels. Make sure you purchase snow tires that are the same size and construction type as the other tires on your vehicle.
