Tyre Load Index - robZilla
Can anyone explain what the load index of a tyre represents? I am looking for some new tyres and the ones I want come in two load indeces - 91 and 95. I know it has something to do with the load they can carry at the speed indicated by the speed rating (in this case, H) but what does that mean in the real world? The 95 tyres are slightly more expensive than the 91, so I guess what I'm really getting at is, is it worth spending the extra for the 95s?

The load index is a code to indicate max load for that tyre.

(91=615Kg, 95=690Kg)

This is rarely used in the UK.

Check the weight of your vehicle from the spec. Add 500Kg for max load (if ordinary car).

It would seem to me that code 91 tyres would be ample.
