The Duravis R205 is a highway all position rib type tyre designed for three to ten tonne trucks and is a tough and dependable partner for commercial vehicles. With its new innovative tread and carcass design the R205 delivers 15% more wear life, reduced irregular wear, and improved wet braking compared to the R202. The R205 has also been specifically designed with a squarer more robust shoulder design to resist shoulder wear which commonly occurs on the steer axle of light trucks.
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.
