Which truck tyres can I mount on which axle?
A truck has several axles; a trailer axles, drive axles or steering axles. There are legal rules regarding which tyres may be fitted to which axles. These regulations have been made because of the fact that truck tyres have specific tread patterns. A tread pattern is the profile design of a tyre. These tread patterns are specially developed for certain applications. For example, tyres with tread pattern D can better withstand the transmission of engine torque and the forces generated by braking. For this reason, these tyres may only be fitted on the drive axle.
- Steering axles: only tyres with tread pattern F or Z may be fitted to the steering axle.
- Drive axles: on the drive axle, only tyres with tread pattern D or Z may be used.
- Trailer axles:on trailer axles, only tyres with tread pattern T or Z may be used.
