TYRES FOR COMMERCIAL AND LIGHT TRUCK VEHICLES

When it comes to commercial and light truck tyres there are three main sizing systems that are used; light truck high flotation, light truck metric and light truck numeric. The sizing charts refer to the performance requirements for both the vehicle and the tyres.

Many light trucks are used as commercial vehicles which means they typically do a lot more on road driving than a regular passenger car. Being on road more also means that your vehicle is likely to encounter all kinds of weather conditions.

If you rely on your light truck or commercial vehicle for your livelihood, then having good tyres that are also the right type of tyres for your vehicle is crucial.

HOW TO READ YOUR TYRE MEASUREMENTS

All tyres are marked on the outside rim with a tyre sizing. The numbers will read something like: 215/60 R16. The 215 indicates the tyre width in mm, the 60 represents the height to width ratio as a percentage, the R refers to the type of construction, Radial in this case and the 16 refers to the rim diameter in inches.
