Hi guys
I've got a t5.1 32 and I'm currently running rr alloys with 275/35/20 tyres, I want to go to 40 profile but don't know what load rating to look for and where to look for it. Any advice would be great

hi
If you open the bonnet and find the chassis plate it will tell you the axle weights for your particular model , rear axle is normally a little higher . Divide by two and that's your requirement for each tyre .

The load rating is the last number usually followed by a "y" eg 275/40/20" 103 y , first numbers are the size last number load rating . A quick Google search will tell you what the number equates to in kgs .

Think we have 245/45/20" 106y so very capable on our T32.Hope this helps .

Hi,

anything over a 103 is ok on a T32.

Loads of choice in 275/40x20, mostly 106 load rating, as std Range Rover size.
