1. Specifications of radial tyres for heavy truck tyres


The specification of radial tyres for heavy truck tyres is 12.00R20-18: The first two digits 11 or 12 indicate the tyre section width (inch), the third and fourth digits (00) indicate the aspect ratio, that is, the ratio of the section height to width, and the fifth digit (R) indicates the tyre has a radial structure, the seventh and eighth digits (20) indicate the rim diameter (inch), and the last two digits (18) indicate the ply rating of the tyre.

The specification of nylon tyre (bias tyre) for heavy truck tyres is 12.00-20-20, the first two digits 11 or 12 indicate the tyre section width (inch), the fifth digit (–) indicates that the tyre is a nylon tyre structure, the sixth and seventh digits (20 or 24) indicate the rim diameter (inch), and the last two digits (20) indicate the ply rating of the tyre.


The ply rating of the tyre is the concept of strength. Rating 1 represents the strength of one layer of cotton. The larger the rating, the higher the strength, but it does not necessarily represent the actual number of layers. For example, an 8-rating carcass is equivalent to 14 layers.
