In an effort to minimize cost, some people try using snow tires only on the drive wheels of their vehicle. This is an ineffective and possibly dangerous solution. This may give you the confidence in certain situations of having control however this is an illusion and the false confidence may lead to reckless results. Putting snow tires in the front on a front wheel drive may allow better starts and stopping but it places you in danger of fishtailing around turns. The rear wheels will not have sufficient traction to handle the turns your front wheels initiate. Similarly and possibly more dangerous, putting snow tires on the rear wheels of a rear wheel drive car will allow better starts but will do nothing for steering or braking. It is always advised to install snow tires in a complete set of four.
No matter how carefully you drive or how cautiously you choose your routes sooner or later you are going to have to replace your existing truck and trailer tires. If you are an owner operator then you know that this is a very costly event and you do need to take time to select just the right type, brand and design of tire that matches your typical driving experience. The type of tire that you use should be designed for your type of driving. In addition you need to consider the position on the truck or trailer for the tire. Generally there are three positions that are possible and they are designated as an all positions tire, a drive axle or a trailer axle tire. In addition, since these same tires can be used for different types of vehicles they are also rated for long haul, regional, on/off road, urban and off road. Different tire companies may have different designations, but they will equate to the same purpose.
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.
