Have you ever wondered what all the numbers and letters on a tyres' sidewall actually mean?
On this page, we would like to explain them to you.
The tyre size is an alphanumeric code embedded on a tyre's sidewall.
Here is an example: 205/55 R16 91V.
205: This number indicates the width of a tyre's sidewall. Measured in millimetres, this width remains the same for both the sidewalls.
55: The sidewall ratio to the tyre's width is symbolised by this number. So, in this instance, the tyre's height is 55% of its width.
R: This alphabet is symbolic of the tyre's construction type. R stands for radial, which is the most common type. Other variants include bias-ply and diagonal.
16: This number stands for the wheel rim diameter of the tyre. Note that this measurement is done in inches.
91: This number signifies the load-bearing index of a tyre. So, this tyre has a load-bearing capacity of 615 kg.
V: This underline's the product's speed rating. So, this tyre can be driven at a maximum speed of 149 mph.
