How do I choose van tyres?
Van tyres are also known as cargo tyres. This is because they have been specifically developed for small vans which are also known as LCVs (light commercial vehicles). Every cargo tyre is marked with a ‘C’ rating and will also have two load indexes. One for a twin-wheel axle and the second for a single axle.
Although van tyres are closely matched to some non-cargo vehicles, for safety reasons, you should never interchange between the different types.
What are van tyres?
Van tyres/cargo tyres are highly durable for tough working environments and have strengthened sidewalls which allow for increased load. This does have an impact on speed and grip which are secondary factors for load-carrying vehicles.
What are the benefits of van tyres?
There are some additional unexpected benefits of van tyres which include road noise reduction to improve the driving experience of commercial drivers.
Van tyres also have a softer ride as they are supple over uneven road surfaces, which is a road safety benefit, especially when carrying cargo. With ongoing improvements in tyre technology, we expect driving experiences of van tyres to improve even further over the coming years.
