Tire Load Index Chart

Tire Load index indicates the amount of weight a tire can safely support.  The higher the index number, the greater the load-carrying capabilities.  In order to calculate your vehicle's maximum carrying capacity, multiply you tire's load index grade by four.  Average load index scores for passenger cars and light trucks range from 75 to 105.

Your tire's load index information can normally be found in your owner's manual.  It's possible you may be unable to find the load index score because manufacturers are not required to list the information.  For safety, never use tires with a lower load index than the original equipment tires on your vehicle.
