Decoding tyre sizes

As you can see on every tyre’s sidewall, the tyre size is a combination of letters and numbers. This alpha-numeric code will give you detailed information on several factors - tyre measurements, speed index, aspect ratio, etc.

For example, a tyre size 185/60 R14 82H will provide you with the following information:

185: These digits indicate the tyre width in millimetres.

60: This denotes the aspect ratio in percentage. It is calculated by dividing the height of the sidewall by the tyre's width.

R- It is a tyre’s type of construction. In this case, it's radial.

14- Denotes its rim diameter in inches.

82- This signifies the load index.

H- And finally, the alphabet denotes its speed rating. It indicates the tyre's maximum speed limit in miles per hour. In this case it is 130 mph.

What happens if you buy tyres of the wrong size?

  • Reduced steering and acceleration.
  • False speedometer reading
  • Changed braking distance
  • Your car's wheel bearings and other car parts will get damaged over time.
