What does the tire load rating indicate?

The terms “C,” “D,” “E,” and “G” ratings on a trailer tire refer to the tire’s load-carrying capacity. These ratings are part of the tire’s load range classification, and they indicate the maximum amount of load that a single tire can support.

Here’s a brief explanation of each rating:

  1. C Rating: This is a standard load range rating. C-rated tires have a lower load-carrying capacity compared to higher-rated tires. They are commonly used on smaller trailers and lighter loads.
  2. D Rating: D-rated tires have a higher load-carrying capacity than C-rated tires. They are suitable for trailers carrying heavier loads, and they provide more strength and durability.
  3. E Rating: E-rated tires have an even higher load-carrying capacity than D-rated tires. These are commonly used on larger trailers, including those used for heavier loads such as equipment trailers or larger RVs.
  4. G Rating: G-rated tires have the highest load-carrying capacity among these ratings. They are typically used on heavy-duty trailers, such as those designed for transporting large construction equipment or other substantial loads.

When choosing trailer tires, it’s crucial to select tires with a load-carrying capacity that matches or exceeds the weight of the trailer and its cargo. This ensures safe and reliable performance while towing. Always refer to the manufacturer’s specifications and guidelines for your specific trailer to determine the appropriate tire size and load rating.
