How To Read Industrial Tire Sizes

Sep 27, 2017

Different sized equipment / machine call for different industrial tire sizes, and styles for that matter. Understanding the gibberish printed on the sidewall of your tires is your first step to understanding what you need to buy to properly shod your mechanical workhorse. The second step to picking replacements for your worn out tires is understanding your options and matching those options to your needs, since what your equipment / machine came with from the factory may not be the best tire to do what you need it to do today.

Some references and symbols that we can find in the tire marking are:

PR (Ply Rating): defines the tire’s load index; however, this notation is no longer much used except for a few conventional tires.  

TL (Tubeless): refers to a tubeless tire construction 

Pattern: provides reference on the version and the tread design

IMP (Implement): means that the tire has been designed for agricultural machinery as a trailer wheel

IND (Industrial): is stamped on tires developed for applications with industrial tractors, telehandlers, excavators or backhoe loaders 

IF (High Flexion): identifies a tire designed for operating at a lower pressure than usual

VF (Very High Flexion): identifies a tire designed for operating at a much lower pressure than usual
