How Do You Read the Information on the Tire?

If you break the information down to a series of abbreviations, it makes it much more palatable. It’s to your benefit to try and familiarize yourself with some of the fundamentals of your vehicle.

The segment might begin with a letter, such as “P,” which indicates it’s a passenger car. From there, you see a three-digit number, perhaps 225, that will tell you the tire’s width in millimeters. After the slash is a two-digit number that is the aspect ratio. Say it’s a 65, that just means that the tire’s height is 64% of its width. Another letter follows. It might be an “R” for radial. The last numbers in the series indicate the size of the wheel the tire fits on. If it’s a 15, then the wheel size is 15 inches.
