So I'm looking to get some new tires and I come across this, " P195/50R-15 81V"... Im trying to figure out what the 81V means, anyone know? :shrug2:


81 is the load index, how much weight the individual tires can hold, that one is for 1019lbs or 462kgs, and the V is the speed rating, V is 149mph or 240kmh.
Thanks guys!!! I'll make sure I check around more before I ask a simple one like that again, I didn't realize that was in the reference section, sorry. :doh:
Thanks again
