Tyre Size Measurements

Reading Your Tyre Size

Your vehicles tyre size can be found on the sidewall of your tyre. Look for the manufacturer’s name on the tyre (e.g. Bridgestone or Goodyear etc). You will see a set of numbers and letters that signify the size, load capability and speed rating of the tyre.

It is important that you convey this information accurately to avoid any error in quotation and supply.

For Example:
235 / 55 R17 99W

235 is the width of the tyre in millimetres.
55 is the aspect ratio or tyre profile.
R means it is radial construction (common in most passenger tyres)
17 is the diameter of the wheel rim in inches.
99 is the Load Index
W is the Speed Rating

What’s a tyre’s profile?

This identifies the ‘height’ from the bottom of the tread to the rim, and the number represents a percentage of the tread width. Our tyre example (235/55R17) has a profile or sidewall that is 55% of the 235mm (width).
