Van tyre ratings?????
#1
My Berlingo is up for PSV and was told by my mechanic that I needed proper van rated tyres on the rear.
On the drivers side door post there is a sticker giving the size of tyres required:- 175/65R14 C88/90T which I had fitted. But when looking at the tyres today I noticed that instead of reading 88/90T it reads 90/88T.
Have they supplied me with the correct tyre or not?
Will the van pass PSV with them on?

Hi Roly,
The rating on your tyres relate to the load rating (the 88 bit) and the speed rating (the T bit).
The difference between 88 and 90 is 560kg and 600kg.
The speed rating of a "T" tyre is 118mph.
As for the other markings the 175 is the width of the tyre in mm and the 65 is the height of the tyre as a percentage of the width, in this case 65% of 175mm. (114mm, roughly!)
The "R" is for radial and the 14 is the diameter of the rim in inches.

I have Toyo Proxes CF1 on my van; 175/65R14 82H.
So 130mph, but only 430kg.
They are on the front; not replaced the rears yet.

Hope this helps.:thumbsup:

Thanks Martin
It is the load rating that I am concerned about. The van is a 600 enterprise so that is 600kg. I take it that 88/90T is the same as 90/88T? Confusedcratch: If so they are good to go Confusedunny:
I do have 175/65R14 82H on the front as well but was told that is ok, its just the rears need to be rated properly.

just found out that it does not matter if it is 88/90T or 90/88T, it means the same thing :lol:

Correct, Roly.
That's the impression I got.
Not due for rear tyres yet, but will make sure rated correctly.
Don't carry much weight at moment; but you never know...:thumbsup:
