Did you know… each vehicle has a specific speed and load rating requirement for it’s tyres. This information is provided on a tyre placard in the car, usually on the drivers door pillar. Passenger tyres must have a minimum 180km/h speed rating and the load rating must be as high or higher than on the placard, your insurance can be void if this isn’t followed. Don’t get caught out buying second hand tyres that won’t suit your vehicle. See the pictures for examples of the tyre placard and see the load and speed rating charts to see what the letters and numbers mean. Tyre placards can also tell you rim sizes, tyre sizes (some will have multiple choices) and recommended tyre pressures.
