Hi

I am getting some Bridgestone 694 275/70R 16 LT (Light truck ) fitted.

The Bridgestone dealer assured me the load rate of the LT is 119.

Going by the Bridgestone website the LT has a load rate of 114.

Bridgestone D694 (275/70R16 LT) 275 70 16 Load 114

Bridgestone D694 (275/70R16) 275 70 16 Load 119

If anyone has the 694LT fitted would you advise what load rate is stamped on your tyres, also do the 694LT have the LT marked on the tyres?

I just want to make sure they give me the correct tyres.

Regards

Ive had 235x85x16 694LT for a month or so. I cant see a max load in kg but I think the rating is 116.
LT is marked in big letters

It also says 80 PSI !! Does that sound right?

Thanks for the info. I had a look at your tyre on the website. Load rate is 120. There is only the one LT that they make in your size.
I do not know what the 80 PSI is . Maybe maximum recomended pressure for your tyre.

Ross,

80psi max pressure sounds about right for LT tyre. I would advise much less than this if you are running empty all the time. I run max gvm all day every day and run about 45 (sometimes 50) psi and this seems to give me good tyre wear and life while still giving good feel of the road and vehicle dynamics.

My Tyres: Green one 693 AT duelers LT 265 75 16
Bronze one Wrangler AT 265 75 16 LT

Cheers, Trevor.

I knew LT could have high PSI but Ive never seen them that high before.
The dealer recommended 36psi but they were too soft and the fuel consumption went from 12.5/100 to over 14/100.

Ive been running them at almost 50 psi but was worried it might be too much,so its good to know 80 is the max

Bridgestone D694 (275/70R16 LT) has a 114 rating and the non LT has a 119 rating
the difference between the lt and non lt is in the way the tyre is constructed even thou the non lt has a higher load rating the lt is still a stronger tyre with thicker plies etc
im pretty sure thers 3 tyres made in that size so its a little confusing also lt is stamped on the tyre size
theese are a great tyre but then again i work for bridgestone lol
cheers

Hi again.

I just spoke with Bridgestone HQ. T
hey have a typing error on the website specifications for the 694 LT tyre.
The load rating of 119 is the light truck tyre. They have the "LT" typed in for the 114 rating by mistake.
