How many tires can fit into a sea container?
Mixed Tire Loading
Tires And Other Mixes
Generally speaking, mix loading tires of different sizes is so common. How many tires of each size I would load to maximize the use of the limited container space in this case? Follow me step by step and we will know the answer! First of all, it is important to know how many tires can fit in a certain size into each 40HQ. Now let’s start our study journey of today!
How many tires can fit into a sea container?
This formula is also suitable for calculating the packing volume of tires with large size differences (larger tires mixed with smaller tires).
Size | Quantity | Volume Coefficient
Per Tire |

* Quantity |
olume Coeflicient
For Each Size |
---|---|---|---|---|
11R22.5 | 132 | 0.00357 | 0.00357*132 | 0.47124 |
385/65R22.5 | 100 | 0.00513 | 0.00513*100 | 0.513 |
Total Volume Coe Ficient | 0.98424 |
It is worth noting that when the result is close to 0.43, these tires can be loaded into a 1*20GP.
So, when the result is close to X.43 (e.g. 1.43, 2.43, 3.43…), 20GP container can be used to load tires.
For example, when the sum result is 5.43, these tires need totally 6 containers, 5*40HQ+1*20GP.
Size A volume coefficient * Size A quantity + Size B volume coefficient * Size B quantity + … = Container quantity
(PS: If there is a decimal in the obtained result, the result will be calculated as +1 after removing the decimal.) For example, when the result is 1.23 + 2.15 + 0.42 = 3.8, remove 0.8 and change 3 + 1 = 4. “4” means that 4 containers are needed.When we mix tires with other machines, can we just use this formula to calculate? The answer is no. So how do we calculate it.
Let’s do the math step by step!
40 ft High cube | Container | ||
---|---|---|---|
Dimensions | External | 12.192X2.438x2.896 | M |
40x8X9.5 | FT | ||
Internal | 12.031X2.348X2.695 | M | |
Door Opening(W*H) | 2.336x2.585 | M | |
Inside Cubic Capacity | 76 | CBM | |
Maximum Gross Weight | 30,480 | KG | |
Tare Weight | 3,990 | KG | |
Maximum Payload | 26,490 | KG |
It is crucial to consider the actual volume occupied by the product instead of the volume of the product itself.
For example, there are 9 wooden boxes of 0.7m*1m*0.85m (product description: lamps), which will be loaded with tires. As you can see, there are two ways to place these wooden boxes
To make it more intuitive, the color green will mark available space for the tires, the second way to load the tires should be taken, as taking the second way reduces the wasted space. Besides,we also need to take into account that lamps are fragile and should not be placed on tires.
now it’s easy to calculate dimension not available for tires.
Tyre space = total container volume – dimension not available for tires
Space available for tires =Tire usable volume coefficient = Size A volume coefficient * Size A quantity + Size B volume coefficient * Size B quantity +… Size F volume coefficient * Size F quantity
For exmaple, mix with 11R22.5 and 315/80R22.5Size | Volume Coefficient

Depending on different occasions, there will be some discrepancies between the theoretical results and the actual quantity.
