Are you looking for Tyres Size for your vehicle?

One thing to bear in mind while replacing a tyre is its size. Installing the wrong tyre size on your car will reduce its overall performance and also affects the following factors, such as:

  • Handling of the car
  • Car speed
  • Cornering speeds
  • Handling performance on uneven roads
  • Mileage of the car

Therefore, if you want your car to perform well in every regard, please take a look at the in-depth breakdown of the tyre size elements by experts at CarFix Garage.

Tyre size is an alphanumeric code that represents structural and dimensional details of tyres London. You can find these codes in the tyre's sidewalls.

Let's understand this even better through example.

Suppose a tyre size code is 175/70 R13. Then with the help of this alphanumerical code, we can decode the following:

175

These first three digits indicate the tyre's width, measured in millimetres.

70

After the tyre width comes the number 70, representing the aspect ratio of a tyre or a profile height measured in percentage.

R

Letter "R" explains that this tyre has radial construction. Apart from this, there are other types of tyre constructions, such as Bias Belt and Diagonal Cross-ply indicated by the letters B and D.

13

It represents the tyre diameter measured in inches.

However, there are other factors too which are very important to remember like:

Speed index

The speed index tells us the maximum speed sported by the respective tyre.

Load index

The load index indicates the maximum load a particular tyre model can carry when fully inflated.
