What do XL and Reinforced mean?

If your car is a multi-purpose vehicle (i.e. Minivan) or a vehicle that tends to carry heavy loads, it is likely that the manufacturer has designed the vehicle to be fitted with tyres which are capable of supporting heavier loads. These tyres are classified as XL (Extra Load) or reinforced tyres.

If your current tyres are either of these, you will see the lettering XL or RNF on the sidewall of the tyre – in the same way that the tyre size is printed on the side.
