Tyre size decoded
Tyre size is an alphanumeric code embedded on a tyre’s sidewall. It includes information, such as its structural and dimensional details. So, without further ado, let’s take a sample tyre size for better understanding.
Tyre size code is 195/65 R15 91H. Let us decode!
195- This number indicates the tyre’s width in millimetres.
65- It represents the aspect ratio of the tyre or the overall height measured in percentage of the cross-section tyre width.
R- This letter R helps us know that a tyre has radial construction.
15- Number 15 represents the rim diameter of the particular tyre in inches.
91- This number 91 represents the load index of a tyre. It means the maximum load a respective tyre can handle, which in this case is 1356 lbs.
H- Letter H represents as speed index. It will help us know the maximum speed for the tyre at full load. Here, it is 130 mph.
The performance of your car can get severely jeopardised if you install tyres of the wrong size on your vehicle.
