¿Cuánto peso es demasiado para sus llantas?

Índice de carga de la llanta

Podemos verlo. Está mirando su vehículo, rascándose la cabeza, preguntándose cuánto peso más pueden soportar las llantas. Well, before you jam that last box into your car or squeeze a second ATV into your truck bed, you should check your tire sidewall; look at the max load weight.

¿Qué es el índice de carga de la llanta?

It's simple. Your tire load rating is an index number between 65 and 170, which you can find on the tire sidewall. The index number corresponds to the tire's load-carrying capacity for a single tire. That's a fancy way of saying it's the maximum amount of weight that your tire can support at the maximum inflation pressure. But you can also simply look at the Max Load weight, also on the sidewall of your tire.

Attention pickup truck drivers!

All Light Truck (LT) tires have two numbers in the Tire Load Index. The first number tells you the load capacity when using tires in a single application. The second number, you guessed it, tells you the load capacity when using tires in a dual application.
