Most passenger-car tire load indexes range from 75 to 100, but some are higher. The chart shows how load indexes translate to weight.

Load Index

The higher the tire's load index number, the greater its load carrying capacity. Choosing a tire with a lower load index than the original equipment specifications means that the tire will not carry the load capacity of the original.
