The "P" in this example stands for passenger. This tire would go on a passenger car. You may also see "LT" for a light truck, "T" for temporary tire, or "E" for a heavy duty truck. Simple enough when you know what kind of vehicle you drive.
The size of the wheel’s rim is represented by the "14" in inches. You can’t put a 16 inch tire on a 14 inch rim or visa versa. That obviously makes sense. "82" is the load index. There is a maximum load carrying capacity chart to determine what tires you will need based on the vehicle you drive. In this case, it shows that the maximum load carrying capacity is 4,188 pounds. You definitely don’t want to put too much pressure on tires that can’t handle it all.
Tires play a critical role in the handling, maneuvering and braking of any motor vehicle. No matter what the type...RV, SUV, utility vehicle or commercial truck, tires are the only thing that contacts the road. Obviously, there is much more than just the vehicle resting on those tires, its overall safe operation is as well. By following some basic tire safety practices, you will not only drive with a greater degree of security, you will extend the usable life of your tire investment considerably.
