How to indicate tire

Indication of structure, load, and air pressure


LRH LR stands for Load Range. H has the same meaning as 16PR.
Tread part uses four steel belts and one steel carcass cord.
Uses one steel carcass cord on the side area.
Load and
air pressure
Approved maximum load under the designated air pressure

Radial Bias Tires

Comparison between Radial and Bias tires


The cord direction of carcass is perpendicular with the center line. Strong belt improves speeding and driving safety.


The cord direction of carcass is at an angle of about 35 degrees from the tire's center line.
Structure Carcass + steel belt : perpendicular with the driving direction Many carcasses cross-passing each other
Durability Absence of intervention among carcasses results in low release of heat and improved durability The carcasses intervene each other, resulting in release of much heat and aging.
The tread part is sustained by belt made of steel. As a result, this tire has strong wear resistance. Unable to sustain tread part. Wear resistance not good due to fluctuation.
Comfort Thin and flexible side wall absorbs shock. Great driving comfort. Thick side wall relays shock without any absorption.
Economy 1.5~2 times compared to the bias Little wear resistance causes frequent loading and unloading. Economy vs. price is low.

Tubless & Tube Type Tires
Heat Releasing
Flat-tire Related
Balance Superb balance thanks to the absence of imbalance stemming from tube, flap, and, fixed ring. Low balance due to imbalance among many parts and the folding of tube.
Weight Reduction of weight and improvement of combustion rate by using tire and rim only. Use of tube and flap increases weight.
