    Default Tyre load rating

    Hi can someone tell me whether I should be using a 91 rating or 95 rating on my 3.2 v6 Elite. Many thanks.

    Take a look at the information plate on the B pillar at the drivers door
    Post the information with respect to the axle loads

    Mulitply the front x 2, and the rear x 2
    Divide that total / 4
    If this number is greater than 670 then you need XL rated rated
    The load rating will depend on the tyre size

    I'd believe 94 would be the minimum so 95 would be better as you can never be too caareful. and I suggest xls are the way to go with the diesels/vxr and gsi.
