In this tyre the capacity will be vary, the D range will have 1220lbs for 65psi and E range will have 1520lbs for 80psi. The average kilometers the tyre can last is 40000kms. We can’t exactly say as 40000kms, due to some factors it will change. It depends on the fact tread depth and life of the rubber. If these both were good, the tyres can go for more kilometers. We need to check those things before buying the tyres. The tread depth is important factor, by this only we can travel to hard places. If the tread depth got decreased the life of the tyres will also reduce. The depth should be high here. Then the quality of the rubber is another factor. If the quality is good then it goes for long life without issues. Or else the quality is not good; the tyre will get damage easily and will can feel the slippery experience and smoothness in the tyres. LT tyres and P tyres are the two types of tyres used in the market. Mostly LT tyres were used for heavy vehicles and it is used for the vehicles which undergoes rough surface such as mountains, rough roads, hilly areas, etc., the capacity will be high here to carry the loads. P tyres are known as the passenger tyres, only it can be used for household vehicles such as cars, trucks, two wheelers. It can be used in paved paths alone. So, based on the usage the tyre will last.
