How much weight can a Load Range E tire carry?
The Load Range C BFGoodrich tire (manufactured by Michelin) is rated at 2,470 at 50 psi and weighs 44 pounds, while the same tire in Load Range E is rated at 3,195 pounds at 80 psi and weighs 52 pounds….Common Light Truck (LT) Load Ranges.
|Load Range||Max Load Pressure (psi)|
What is the load index of a Load Range E tire?
We’ve seen E load range tires with a load index of just 109 (2,271 pounds per tire), but D load range tires with a 118 load index (2,910 pounds). Long story short, load range isn’t the end-all, be-all for a tire’s load carrying ability.
What is class E tire load?
For example, an “E” load range indicates that a tire is equivalent to a 10-ply construction tire. In realitly, this tire is not built with 10 plies, but rather one or two plies of equivalent strength.
What is E load rating?
E-rated tires refer to the load rating, which is how much pressure the tires can handle at max load. This rating is only used for Light Truck tires. Passenger-type tires use a simpler SL (Standard Load) and XL (Extra Load) rating. An E-rating means the tires can handle anywhere between 60 – 85 PSI.
What is Load Range E capacity?
When you see the letter E on the tire, it means that your tire has a ply rating of 10, and the maximum load pressure is 80 psi (550 kPa). You will find this letter E in the middle of almost all tire service descriptions.
Is Load Range E good for towing?
At a minimum, Load Range E tires are capable of safely supporting about 3,000 pounds. So, in the case of a dualie (six wheels), the tires collectively will provide more than sufficient grip for safely towing 18,000 pounds.
Are all Load Range E tires 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 is a good load range E tire?
Load Range E (10 ply tire) – maximum load pressure of 80 psi (550kPa)
What load range tire do I need for my trailer?
To find out what your tires’ load carrying capacity minimum needs to be, simply divide the trailer’s GVWR by the total number of tires (in our example: 10,000/4 = 2,500). Luckily, trailer manufacturers almost always include tires that (when combined) exceed the trailer’s GVWR by a fair margin.
Does a 3/4 ton truck need 10 ply tires?
Understanding the tire ply rating system helps you understand how your tires support the weight of your vehicle (called load range or load index). If you drive a ¾ ton, one ton or even larger pickup or SUV (or haul a trailer) then you require 10-ply tires.
