Wheels
Tires
and
vehicle
load
limits
There
are
limits
to
the
amount
of
load
or
weight
that
any
vehicle
and
any
tire
can
carry.
A
vehicle
that
is
overloaded
will
not
handle
well
and
is
more
difficult
to
stop.
Overloading
can not
only
lead
to
loss
of
vehicle
control,
but
can
al-
so
damage
important
parts
of
the
vehicle
and
can
lead
to
sudden
tire
failure,
including
a
blowout
and
sudden
deflation
that
can
cause
the
vehicle
to
crash.
Your
safety
and
that
of
your
pas-
sengers
also
depends
on
making
sure
that
load
limits
are
not
ex-
ceeded.
Vehicle
load
includes
ev-
erybody
and
everything
in
and
on
the
vehicle.
These
load
limits
are
technically
referred
to as
the
vehi-
cle’s
Gross
Vehicle
Weight
Rating
(“GVWR”).
The
“GVWR”
includes
the
weight
of
the
basic
vehicle,
all
factory
in-
stalled
accessories,
a
full
tank
of
fuel,
oil,
coolant
and
other
fluids
plus
maximum
load.
The
maxi-
mum
load
includes
the
number
of
passengers
that
the
vehicle
is
in-
tended
to
carry
(“seating
capaci-
ty”)
with
an
assumed
weight
of
150
lbs.
(68
kg)
for
each
passen-
248
ger
at
a
designated
seating
posi-
tion
and
the
total
weight
of
any
luggage
in
the
vehicle.
If
you
tow
a
trailer,
the
weight
of
the
trailer
hitch
and
the
tongue
weight
of
the
loaded
trailer
must
be
includ-
ed
as
part
of
the
vehicle
load.
The
Gross
Axle
Weight
Rating
(“GAWR”)
is
the
maximum
load
that
can
be
applied
at
each
of
the
vehicle’s
two
axles.
The
fact
that
there
is
an
upper
limit
to
your
vehicle’s
Gross
Vehi-
cle
Weight
Rating
means
that
the
total
weight
of
whatever
is
being
carried
in
the
vehicle
(including
the
weight
of
a
trailer
hitch
and
the
tongue
weight
of
the
loaded
trailer)
is
limited.
The
more
pas-
sengers
in
the
vehicle
or
passen-
gers
who
are
heavier
than
the
standard
weights
assumed
mean
that
less
weight
can
be
carried
as
luggage.
The
Gross
Vehicle
Weight
Rating
and
the
Gross
Axle
Weight
Rating
are
listed
on
the
safety
compli-
ance
sticker
on
the
driver’s
side
B-
pillar
respectively
on
the
front
end
of
the
driver's
door.
