Decoding tyre size

Tyre size is a set of unique alphanumeric codes that conveys vital data about a vehicle tyre on various crucial metrics.

Here is an example:

Let’s say you have purchased car tyres Tadley with the following code embossed on the sidewalls: 185/45 R15 75V

This is what each of the components of the code will imply:

185:The first three digits denote tyre width. It is represented in millimetres. Here, the tyre comes with a width of 185 mm.

45:The next two digits signify aspect ratio or profile of a tyre. It is the ratio of a tyre’s sidewall to its width and is measured in percentage. In this case, the ratio of sidewall to the width is 45%.

R:R stands for Radial, and it denotes the type of construction that a tyre features. Majority of car tyres in the UK are of radial type. 

15:This refers to the rim diameter of a tyre and is represented in inches. The tyre in question has a wheel diameter of 15 inches. 

75: After rim diameter comes the load capacity of a tyre. It is the optimum load that a tyre can withstand when inflated to its maximum. Here, 75 indicate that the tyre can withstand a maximum load of 387 kgs.

V:Lastly, the final letter in this series is the speed rating. It shows the maximum speed at which a tyre can run while carrying its optimal load. Here, V means the tyre in question comes with a speed rating of 149 miles/hour.
