Tips On Reading Tire Sizes

Are you lost on how to read tire sizes for your vehicle? Here are a few handy tips on reading tire sizes and getting the best possible tires for your vehicle.
  • The tire's class is determined by the first letter of the tire's markings. For example, a "P" would stand for passenger car tires
  • The section width refers to the width of the tire
  • The aspect ratio number refers to the tire's height
  • The speed rating refers to how fast you can go on a properly inflated tire
  • An R would designate the tire as radial
  • Wheel Diameter helps you choose a tire size to fit your wheel
  • Load Index indicates the maximum weight your tires can bear
  • And speed rating tells you the exact MPH these tires are designed to go up to
