A little history on Big Rig tires
In North America, most semi-tractors, commonly referred to as tractor-trailers, semis, big rigs, and large cars, have two or three axles and for special purposes such as hauling heavy-duty commercial construction machinery, occasionally four or five. The most common layout is engine forward of the cab, one steering axle, and two drive axles (drive tandem) with a sleeper between the cab and the drive tandem. The drive tandem can be linked to provide more torque when higher traction is needed via an airlocker similar to a 4×4 pickup. Less common is the Cabover, a configuration popular before the 1990s where the driver sat next to the engine. With changes to the maximum length of the combined units, the cabover configuration was mostly phased out of North American Over the Road service by 2007. Cabovers were also notorious for the mechanic, as the cab tilt was never a full 90 degrees. This made for a rough time servicing the front part of the engine. There are also Daycabs, a configuration that eliminates the sleeper from the vehicle. These trucks more often than not have a single drive axle. Most trucks are equipped with a movable fifth wheel to allow adjustment in the weight distribution. North American trucks must have less than the maximum weight limit on their tandem and steer axles unless permitted. In the United States, 80,000 pounds is the maximum allowable legal gross vehicle weight without a permit. The cargo trailer usually has a “tandem” axle pair at the rear, each of which has dual wheels, or eight wheels on the trailer, four per axle. Many trailers are equipped with a movable tandem to allow adjusting the weight distribution. The combination of eight wheels on the trailer and ten wheels on the tractor is what led to the moniker “eighteen wheeler”.
