(Lea en español) Maximum Load. A tire's maximum load is the most weight the tire is designed to carry. Since a tire's load carrying capacity is related to the tire's size and how much inflation pressure is actually used, maximum loads are rated with the tire inflated to an industry assigned inflation pressure.
Automobile tires are described by an alphanumeric tire code (in American English and Canadian English) or tyre code (in British English, Australian English and others), which is generally molded (or moulded) into the sidewall of the tire. This code specifies the dimensions of the tire, and some of its key limitations, such as load-bearing ability, and maximum speed.
The values shown are calculated measurements based on the p-metric formula. Actual advertised tire height and tread width will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer for specific p-metric tire sizes.
Etymology and spelling. The word tire is a short form of attire, from the idea that a wheel with a tire is a dressed wheel.. The spelling tyre does not appear until the 1840s when the English began shrink fitting railway car wheels with malleable iron. Nevertheless, traditional publishers continued using tire.The Times newspaper in Britain was still using tire as late as 1905.
