If a tire gets too hot and there is too much pressure, the tread can actually separate from the belts on the tire. This is more likely to happen with the addition of high speeds. Driving on a highway and losing your tire’s tread can easily cause an accident. Do your part to keep yourself and others safe. Another potential risk is that of hydroplaning. This happens mostly when your tires do not have enough tread. What happens in hydroplaning is that too much water builds between the tires on your car and the road. Water pressure in front of the wheel forces a wedge of water causing it to actually lift from the road. This leads to the loss of traction and you are then at the mercy of the water. You basically skid on the water and have a loss of control in your steering, braking, and acceleration.
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.
Finally, the "H" represents the amount of speed the tires can travel at. An "S" would be able to handle speeds up to 112 mph, an "H" speeds up to 130 mph, and a "V" speeds 150+ mph. These are strict guidelines and should not be tested. Again, this is all good information to know, but it is more important to just know the correct tire size for your car. There’s no need to get confused by all the information when all you really need to know is the tires that make your driving safe. If you have any questions about any of these, ask your mechanic.
