Van (cargo) tyres are dedicated to commercial cars which can take up to 3.5 t of load. Such tyres are marked with a C marking. It usually has two load indexes ( 113/111 – the first one indicates a tyre fitted to a twin axle and the second to a single axle). In comparison to other tyres, cargo ones can carry heavier loads at the cost of speed (they usually have low speed indexes). One especially significant value of those tyres is high durability and high resistance to deformation. Cargo tyres have to be hard to maintain heavier loads and damage caused by holes and by hitting bumps and curbs which can have impact on safety of the load. Cargo tyres are much better in handling. Another advantage is driving comfort which manufacturers are willing to achieve. They know that delivery van drivers are doing more mileage than any other car users, so noise reduction is also much appreciated. Another factor is economy of tyres which results in slower and equal tread wear, high durability and lower torque. Cargo tyre tread pattern is being produced of a much harder compound mixture than passenger car ones. An innovative cargo tyre has some additional protection placed in the inner part of the tyre which makes it resistant to deformation and overloading. Cargo tyres, similarly to other types, ought to have good grip and handling regardless of the road conditions.
