Hi all

I am looking at some new tyres for my Patrol ute. One them is Yokohama Geolander G012 ATS 265/75R16 119/116R. I understand single load rating load rating ( 119=1360kg) but can some explain the dual 119/116 load rating.

Thanks Kevin

My understanding is that when run as a duels they have a lower load rating per tyre as there are times when one of the tyres in the pair will carry near all of the load, like when you drive over a rock or mount a curb or a drain.
