Tire Load Rating Chart

LT- vs. P-Metric Replacement Tires for Trucks, SUVs

Tire-sizing systems used on OE light-truck tires include Euro-Metric, P-Metric, and LT-Metric. Many 1/4- and 1/2-ton vehicles use Euro-Metric and P-Metric tires, while 3/4- and 1-ton vehicles use LT-Metric sizes.

How to Determine Tire Load Ratings

Tire load ratings must be followed when selecting a tire and wheel package. The tire must safely support a given amount of vehicle weight. If the load rating is insufficient, the tire may become overheated and can self destruct.
