It is highly recommended to use the tyres as indicated by vehicle manufacturer’s specification.  However, some of the critical factors to be considered for correct tyre selection are as follows:

  • Vehicle type & use (Passenger or Goods)

  • Load carried and type of load (Load Index)

  • Speed and sustained operations (Speed Index/Symbol)

  • Type/Rim combination (Tyre Size and Rim Profile)

  • Operating conditions (Type of Roads/Terrain)

  • Tyre pattern design requirements based on the application: If directional tyres or special tread pattern are recommended by vehicle manufacture then replacement should be of similar tread pattern type.
