The Load Index is a numerical code associated with the maximum load a tyre can carry at the speed indicated by its Speed Category symbol under specified conditions up to 210km/h. Using a 265/75R16 119N tyre size as an example, the 119N at the end of the size represents the tyre's service description. A service description identifies the tyre's load index and speed rating. The first three digits - 119 - represent the tyre's load index and are followed by a single letter - N - identifying the tyre's speed rating.
