A vehicle speciﬁc Certiﬁcation/Tire label is found on the
rear edge of the driver’s door. The label shows the
size of your vehicle’s original tires and the inﬂation
pressures needed to obtain the gross weight capacity of
your vehicle. This is called Gross Vehicle Weight
Rating (GVWR). The GVWR includes the weight of the
vehicle, all occupants, fuel, cargo and trailer tongue
weight, if pulling a trailer.
The Certiﬁcation/Tire label also tells you the maximum
weights for the front and rear axles, called Gross
Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). To ﬁnd out the actual loads
on your front and rear axles, you need to go to a
weigh station and weigh your vehicle. Your dealer can

equally on both sides of the centerline.
Never exceed the GVWR for your vehicle, or the GAWR
for either the front or rear axle.

Similar appearing vehicles may have different GVWRs
and capacity weights. Please note your vehicle’s
Certiﬁcation/Tire label or consult your dealer for
