Load Rating

2 posts in this topic

Anyone know what the correct load rating is for a 225/50r17 S-Max tyre?

The size has two options, 94 (670kg) and 98 (750kg). The tyres are currently 98 on the vehicle, but I don't want to take this as being gospel.

Like speed rating, tyres can be over-rated for their use. ie. My Cavalier was required H rated tyres, but the Z-rated tyres were cheaper and that is what it was supplied with, but legally I could have fitted H and not been in breach of any isnurance or manufacturers specification.

According to the local dealer, 17" S-Max must use the 98 load, NOT 94.
