How to calculate the needed load capacity of wheels with Polyurethane (Vulkollan) tyres?

How to calculate the needed load capacity of wheels with Polyurethane (Vulkollan) tyres?

To calculate the type of wheel and the needed load capacity of the wheel a number of factors and conditions about the application and use of the wheel have to be taking into account.

Example:
allowable load = 1000kg x 0.75 (continuous running factor) x 0.8 (speed factor) x 0.7 (driving factor) = 420kg.
