Everything You Need to Know About Tire Temperature Ratings

Temperature rating is typically expressed using the Fahrenheit scale, but it can also be converted to Celsius. Here is the approximate temperature range for each temperature rating in Celsius:

  • A: Highest level of heat resistance, able to withstand sustained high speeds and high ambient temperatures. Temperature range: above 100°C (212°F)
  • B: Intermediate level of heat resistance, able to withstand high speeds and temperatures but not for sustained periods. Temperature range: between 82°C to 100°C (180°F to 212°F)
  • C: Lowest level of heat resistance, not recommended for high-speed or high-temperature use. Temperature range: between 71°C to 82°C (160°F to 180°F)

It’s important to note that these temperature ranges are approximate and can vary depending on the specific tire model, vehicle, and other factors. It’s also important to follow the manufacturer’s recommended tire size and specifications for your vehicle to ensure safe and reliable performance.

Additionally, tires can experience heat buildup during operation, especially in hot weather or at high speeds, so it’s important to check tire pressure regularly and avoid overloading the vehicle or driving aggressively.
