    Hi guys, maybe someone has bought same tyres in size 225/40/18 92Y and can confirm if their tyres has XL or extra load written on the sidewall?
    The reason I ask is because I bought a pair of these and I've ordered extra load but on my tyres it's only 225/40/18 92Y, when I phoned camskill I've been told that almost all 18" tyres are extra load and ther's no XL on the tyre and as long as it's rated at 92 it's XL tyre, so I'm bit confused now as on my old tyres Vredestein which are load rated at 95 it says extra load, same on bfgoodrich which are rated at 92 also says extra load, can anyone please shed some light on that. Thanks

    I can't speak for Goodyear, but my Primary 3s specifically have XL written on the sidewall (225/45/R17 94W XL).

    thanks, that's why I'm a bit confused now cos on all my tyres 17" or 18" when they're XL it says XL..I've sent an email to Goodyear about that, so I can't wait for their reply :Grin:

    @Nighthawk, @Zoran and others have Eagle F1s, they should be able to tell you if they have XLs.

    @Brodziu - I don't have the XL's on mine, but I am still very happy with them. They are great tyres

    thanks, that's why I decided to get them as I've read many positive feedbacks, but I just wanted to get what I paid for so in this case they supposed to be XL, but if they really are?

    I've only ever seen XLs for 225/45/R17 so the vendor might be right.

    Reply from goodyear....
    "In this size 92 is extra load , XL is usually on the sidewall but does not have to be ."
    I think it's clear now :Grin:
