Quick Answer

You Asked What is the difference between 4 ply and 10 ply?

A specific tire load rating refers to how much load a tire can carry at a particular pressure. A 4-ply tire is now referred to as a B load range tire because the maximum air pressure it can take is 35 PSI (240 kPa) while a 10-ply or E load range tire can take a maximum pressure of 80 PSI (550 kPa).

Is a 4 ply tire good?

A 4 Ply tire is more resistant to punctures, can take more load, and take tire repair better than a 2 ply. A 2 ply tire is usually less expensive than a 4 ply, can’t take as much load as a higher ply tire and tends to flex more when hot.

Do I need a 10 ply tire?

Understanding the tire ply rating system helps you understand how your tires support the weight of your vehicle (called load range or load index). If you drive a ¾ ton, one ton or even larger pickup or SUV (or haul a trailer) then you require 10-ply tires.

Do 10 ply tires handle better?

Yes, the 10 ply/load E tires make a noticeable difference in ride quality.
