Tyre size is an alphanumeric code imprinted on tyre’s sidewalls. It contains details of its metrics, like its section width, type, speed index, etc.
Before we get into the details, let us take a sample size for your convenience and better understanding.
This denotes a tyre’s width in millimetres. It remains the same across both tyre sidewalls.
The following two digits after tyre width indicate this tyre’s aspect ratio. In our sample tyre size, this ratio is 45%.
After the aspect ratio comes a tyre’s construction type. R refers to radial tyres.
This refers to the rim diameter in inches. In our example, the rim diameter is 17 inches.
Next is a tyre’s maximum load-bearing ability. Here, 87 corresponds to 545 kgs.
The last component denotes a tyre’s speed rating. Here, V indicates a maximum speed of 149mph.
This ensures that a tyre meets all recommendations and regulations as per the ECE 30-02 Regulations.
It stands for Mud + Snow, thereby implying the tyre’s reliable performance on muddy and snowy surfaces.
