Buy reinforced tyres

Reinforced or Extra Load (XL) tyres are designed for heavy vehicles or vehicles with powerful engines. The sidewalls of reinforced tyres are more rigid than conventional "SL" (Standard Load) tyres. The extra rigid sidewalls mean the tyres can withstand greater loads, pressures and stresses.

How do you recognise a reinforced tyre?

A reinforced tyre has specific marking on its sidewall, such as: REINF, REINFORCED, XL, EXTRA LOAD, XLD, RFD or RF. The "XL" standard is tending to replace the other standards.

What does the XL mark on a tyre mean?

"XL" signifies "Extra Load", which means that the tyre is able to withstand a greater weight and higher pressures.
