Load Capacity

Load Capacity

The load carrying capacity and inflation pressure capability of the replacement tires must always equal or exceed the load carrying capacity and inflation pressure capability of the original equipment tires.

The replacement tire must have a maximum load carrying capacity equal to or greater than the maximum load carrying capacity of the original equipment tire. Refer to the tire placard on the vehicle for the recommended inflation pressures of the original equipment size tires. These pressures must be maintained as a minimum. Do not exceed the maximum pressure indicated on the tire sidewall. Tires which are loaded beyond their maximum allowable loads will build up excessive heat that may result in sudden tire destruction.

Do not exceed the gross axle weight ratings for any axle on your vehicle. Consult the vehicle tire placard and/or owner's manual to determine the gross axle weight rating. Following the loading instructions of the vehicle manufacturer should insure that the tires are not overloaded.

If you have any questions, please contact your local tire retailer or call Cooper Tire at 1-800-854-6288.
