The load rating, or load index, is one of the values found on the tire sidewall, as part of the tire sizing designation. The load index indicates the maximum weight that each tire is able to support. You should always replace the tires on your vehicle with a tire that has the same or higher load index than the OEM. This ensures that the tire has an adequate load capacity to carry the weight of the vehicle, cargo and passengers. Never replace the tires on your vehicle with a tire with a lower load index.
