A heavy duty, good handling commercial tyre for couriers, tradesmen and travellers who carry heavy loads and do lots of kilometers. They want a puncture resistant tyre which handles well especially in the wet. The European Van tyre design has a wide, flat contact patch for better handling. The tyre casing promotes uniform pressure across the tyre for even wear and long mileage.
The load rating (represented by the numerical value) is related to the maximum weight that tyre can carry. So in this case 105 would refer to a load capacity of 925kg, with most passenger vehicle load indexes range from 62 to 126.
In all instances the tyres load index must meet or exceed the value displayed on the vehicles placard.
The speed category symbol, for example 'S', indicates the maximum speed at which the tyre can carry a load corresponding to its load index. So in this case, 'S' would refer to a maximum speed of 180km/hour.
See the chart below for a full list of speed symbols and their applicable values.
