The load range “E” on the tire means the tire has a ply rating of 10 and a load pressure of 80 psi.
The higher the number, the stronger and more durable the tire will be. E tires are commonly referred to as 10 ply tires. Load ranges are also used for other types of tires as well, including industrial tires, agricultural tires, aircraft tires, and specialty tires.
What is a load range E tire?
Load range E tires are built with an extra-strong sidewall. You can identify these tires by the letter “E” at the end of the size designation.
Load range E tires are commonly used on heavy loads, such as in commercial applications where a heavier load needs to be carried. Load range E tires are also called 10 ply tires.
How much weight will a load range E tire carry?
Load range E tires typically carry more weight than other load ranges, but the maximum weight that can be carried by a particular tire is specified by the manufacturer and is printed on the side of the tire. For example, if you see “Max Load 3640 lbs @ 50 psi” on the side of your tire, then it means that the tire can carry 1,630 kilograms at 34 PSI (pounds per square inch).
What’s better load range D or E?
Load range E tires are heavier duty than standard Load range D tires. This means they can handle more weight. They are a lot more expensive than average Load Range D tires and are designed for heavy pickup trucks, not passenger cars.
Load range E tires will probably give a harsher ride than Load Range D tires on the same vehicle.
Are Load Range E tires good?
Yes. They are great for heavier trucks and SUVs. But you do need to know where you live. If you live in the north, where there is snow and ice, you will want a light truck tire with a softer compound that grips the road better than heavier tires.
If you live in the south, where it is hot and dry, then a heavy tire with a harder compound will last longer as it won’t get as soft when it gets hot.
What are load range and ply rating on a tire?
Load Range and Ply Rating are terms that have been used to describe the strength of tires for many years. Ply Rating, or Load Range is the published strength of a tire’s construction. This term comes from the early days when tires were made with cotton fabric plies, similar to those used in making canvas tents.
Will 10 ply tires last longer?
The higher ply rating on 10-ply tires means that they are stronger and more durable than 8-ply tires. This means you may get slightly better fuel economy from 10-ply tires because they don’t deform as much under heavy loads or high speeds.
What ply is Load Range E?
The ply of a tire is actually the number of layers of rubber-coated fabric in the tire, which is hidden inside the tire. A standard passenger vehicle tire has 4-5 plies, but a 10-ply tire (such as our Load Range E tires) means that there are 10 layers of rubber-coated fabric in each sidewall and tread area.
What is the difference between Load Range E and F?
Load Range E is a 10-ply rated tire. The Load Range F is an 8-ply rated tire. Load Range E tires have a higher load rating and can carry more weight than Load Range F tires.
Load Range E tires are typically wider than Load Range F tires. Load Range E tires have a deeper tread than Load Range F tires.
The load range of a tire is the maximum amount of weight it can carry while maintaining stability and air pressure. The load range is identified by a letter of the alphabet, usually from A to F, which represents the ply rating and load pressure.
A rating of “E” on the tire means the tire has a ply rating of 10 and a load pressure of 80 psi. Thanks for reading.
