The size information is a series of numbers and letters, ending in a speed rating, embossed over the sidewall’s surface.

How to Read a Tyre Size

Let us consider that the tyre size is: 175/70/R13.


175: Indicates the tyre width in millimetres. The tyre width is measured from sidewall to sidewall.

70: Points out the aspect ratio. You can also refer to this number as the measurement of the sidewall’s height. Specifically, this is the ratio between the tyre’s cross-section and its width. So, according to this example, an aspect ratio of 70 means the tyre’s height is 70% of its width.

R: Tells you about the tyre construction. ‘R’ means Radial construction. This is also the most common tyre construction that you will find. An uncommon tyre construction is bias ply, indicated with ‘B’, or diagonal construction ‘D’.

13: This second number represents the diameter code. It is shown in inches and is crucial because it indicates the wheel’s diameter.

Apart from that, you will also find a few other readings on a tyre’s sidewall. These will include:

  • Load index
  • Speed rating

Ensure that you note these codes down to order new tyres Bury St Edmunds.
