82 represents the maximum load the tyre/tire is designed to carry (eg. 82 means the tire can support around 480kgs of weight/load)

T is the speed rating of the tire - meaning the maximum speed the tire supports. [eg. a T rated tire can support speeds up to 190km/h (118mph), while H, V, ZR, etc have different speed ratings accordingly]

look up more information regarding tire specifications on the internet.. its widely available.. and very interesting!
