Load Rating On Tires Fails State Inspection


 

truck tire, load rating, rating tagJust had to tell a customer with a 3500HD truck that it doesn’t pass inspection because the new tires he put on are not up to the weight class of the truck. They installed the correct size so that was the right way. Problem is that they used standard load when the vehicle required a Light Truck (LT) with Extra Load ply rating from the factory. Do yourselves a favor and always check the door jam to get the correct tires for your application. This vehicle uses a plow as well and the stress on the light duty tires is definitely unsafe.
