Load capacity index: The factors to be considered
The information in the load index table for tyres is based on an assumed tyre pressure of 2.5 bar. However, experience shows that the value is not adhered to in many cars. The pressure is only seldom checked, with the result that tyres are simply not adequately filled. Inadequate tyre pressure has a negative effect on driving behaviour.
Check the air pressure of your tyres on a regular basis and increase it above the target value by a few tenths of a bar as necessary. This way, you will increase your tyre load capacity and guarantee safe driving behaviour.
