Following extensive testing, the provincial government upped the weight limit to a maximum of 7,700 kg per axle on certain highways.
Specifically, to qualify for use, the super wides must be at least 445 millimeters wide, and the truck owner must buy a one-year permit for $50. Still, the super wides can only be used on provincial highways that allow a gross vehicle weight of 56,500 kg or 62,500 kg.
Nova Scotia, Manitoba, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec have increased their weight limits to all super wides to be used. (Tire Review/Akron)
