The maximum load rating is the load rating for a tire at the maximum permissble inflation pressure.

The cargo capacity is the permissible weight of cargo, the substracted weight of passengers from the load limit.

  • Never exceed the permissible limits.

Overloading Vehicle

Overloading will lead to dangerous vehicle reactions and long braking distances.

  • Never exceed the specified axle loads.


Risk of damage to the vehicle if the vehicle is overloaded.

Overloading can shorten the service life of the tires and car. Damage due to overloading is not covered by the vehicle warranty.

  • Never exceed the specified axle loads.


Example for determining the combined weight of occupants and cargo


Vehicle Load Capacity

  • The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed the weight shown on the tire plate in the vehicle.
    Please see the chapter "TIRE PRESSURE PLATE" on page 239.
  • Never exceed the number of passengers shown on the tire pressure plate in the vehicle.

Determining the combined weight of occupants and cargo:

  • Add the weight of all occupants and then add the total luggage weight (figure).

Steps for determining correct load limit

  1. Locate the statement "The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX pounds" on your vehicle's placard (depending on the date of manufacture).
  2. Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that will be riding in your vehicle.
  3. Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from XXX kilograms or XXX pounds.
  4. The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity.
    For example, if the "XXX" amount equals 400 lbs. and there will be two - 150 lb passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 100 lbs. (400 - 300 (2 x 150) = 100 lbs.).
  5. Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being loaded on the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the available cargo and luggage load capacity calculated in Step 4.
