Load Rating
Published: March 31, 2014 | in Tyre Info

This is generally found after the size of the tyre before the speed rating for example 205/55 R16 91V. The figure 91 in this example is the load rating of the tyre. The load rating determines what amount of weight the tyre can carry so this needs to be correct because if you have the wrong load rating it could damage the tyres because they are unable to hold the weight of your car. The incorrect load rating could also invalidate your insurance. Below is a table explaining what the load-rating figure equates to.
